Decree on the Removal of Packaging Material Weight
On January 1, 2024, Decree no. 382 (Regulatory Administrative Act 382/2023) has entered into force. The Decree concerns the removal of the weight of the packaging material (tara) in the products offered in bulk, packaged, and weighed in the presence of the consumer.
Through checks carried out by the Ministry of Energy, Commerce, and Industry, it has been identified that there is a lack of information of their obligations on the part of the retailers. For this reason, the Ministry has planned informational actions that will be linked to a planned inspection, in various premises, all over Cyprus.
Please find below an information leaflet that will also be distributed by the Ministry to inform the retailers. The relevant Decree is also attached.
