This report provides an overview of legislation of Cyprus that imposes obligations with respect to packaging of electrical and electronic equipment and other products.

In 1994, the EU adopted the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive 94/62/EEC (the "Directive"), which partly harmonizes Member States' national packaging legislation. The Directive imposes design, take-back and information requirements on packaging.

Cyprus transposed the Directive through Packaging and Packaging Waste Act of 2002, as last amended in 2012 (the "Packaging Act"). This transposition appears to be consistent with the Directive.

This report provides an overview of the national provisions that differ from or complement the Directive, including where the Directive leaves discretion to the Member States. For a detailed discussion of the Directive, including the definition of packaging, see the subject report on Packaging and Labeling in European Union.

Note that additional chemical restrictions may also be imposed on packaging by the REACH Regulation, the POP Regulation, and other chemical regulations. For substance-specific information, please refer to the EU Restricted Substance Database. Please also refer to the subject report on Restricted Substances Overview in European Union.
