Environmental product fee act was amended
From 01 January 2016 the Product Fee Act was amended. From packaging aspects the modifications are not significant.
Those who decide to manage waste themselves can pay the fee in a simpler way, vehicle manufacturers and distributors can play a flat rate and foreign companies that sell products which are subject to the fee online to Hungary also have to pay – these are the main elements in the modification of the law on the environmental protection product fee, which came into force on 1 January 2016. The modification affects logistics service providers too, because the first domestic owner of waste produced by removing packaging will also have to pay the fee.
