Decree on the Removal of Packaging Material Weight
We would like to inform you that the Minister of Energy, Commerce and Industry has proceeded with the issuance of Decree Regulatory Administrative Act 382/2023 which lays down rules on the removal of the weight of the packaging material (tara) when selling goods which are offered in bulk, packaged and weighed in the presence of the consumer.
According to the Decree, during the weighing and packaging of any good, in the presence of the consumer, the weight of the packaging material (tara) is removed, so that the final charge price concerns the net weight of this good.
The Decree does not apply to packaging material (tara) of a total weight of up to 4 grams and will enter into force on 1 January 2024.
