Notices and publications


COTREP works in two orientations:


1- Editing General Notices on impacts of various components on recycling (ink, varnish, glue, closure system…)
COTREP works with every player in the plastic packaging chain to study the impact of the packaging's components on its recycling.
The knowledge base thus created through General Notices is intended as a tool to be used by manufacturers when designing new packaging.

2- Assessing the recyclability of a packaging product or component through a Technical Notice at manufacturer's request.
These notices enable the applicant to assess the compliance of its packaging product or component with other collection, sorting and recycling systems in Europe. Recycling tests will be realized and co-financed by COTREP.


3- Assessing the recyclability of a packaging product or component through a Simplified Notice at manufacturer's request.
If the packaging subjected to the COTREP does not present a new recyclability aspect, and does not require a specific study of recyclability, a Simplified Notice will be delivered, on the basis of a notice which has been previously published. Actually, the procedure is thus easier and accelerated and theses notices will be delivered free of charge.

Furthermore, contrary to the case of Technical Notices, the applicant is then free to keep this document confidential without publishing on the website.
