You may register an item of one-way packaging with secondary marking. This means that you purchase a deposit mark on a self-adhesive label that you place on the packaging.
We will advise you about deposit marking when you register your packaging.
Examples of self-adhesive deposit marks
With secondary marking, you may choose to pay the deposits, fees and the cost of producing the labels when you purchase the self-adhesive deposit marks. In this situation, you do not need to report your sales. You can also choose to pay only the deposits and the cost of producing the labels when you purchase the self-adhesive deposit marks. In this situation, you need to report your sales, so that Dansk Retursystem A/S can collect the correct fees.
Special self-adhesive deposit marks
Under certain circumstances, Dansk Retursystem A/S may grant a special type of self-adhesive deposit mark that has a number between 0 and 99 instead of the material codes A, G, S or P. Dansk Retursystem A/S always decides whether a special self-adhesive deposit mark may be used.
The special self-adhesive deposit mark is expected to be used for marking non-standard packaging that, for example, requires a different fee. This may include packaging made of composite materials (different materials). The special self-adhesive deposit mark will also be used at trade shows or exhibitions.
Trade show self-adhesive deposit marks
Basically, all packaging containing beverages on which deposits are payable that are marketed in Denmark must be deposit marked. This may be difficult to put into practice at beverage trade shows, especially if there are many foreign exhibitors. Organizers of these types of trade shows can therefore apply exceptionally to register with Dansk Retursystem as trade show organizers and obtain permission to purchase trade show self-adhesive deposit marks.
Being permitted to use trade show self-adhesive deposit marks requires that guests at the trade show pay an entrance fee and that the primary purpose of the fair is to supply beverages. All beverages must be consumed at the location, such as samples.
Once you, as the event organizer of a trade show or exhibition, have registered with Dansk Retursystem you can order trade show self-adhesive deposit marks for use at the event. You may only sell or otherwise transfer the deposit marks to the exhibitors for the products they will use at the event. The price of the marks may not exceed the price you have paid Dansk Retursystem for the marks: the cost of the deposits, the operating fee and the cost of producing the marks. It is optional to offer this service to your exhibitors, but if you choose not to, the exhibitors must deposit mark their products.
A trade show label has the number 01 instead of the usual material code, A, G, S or P. A barcode is always required. Each trade show has its own barcode for each of the deposit values A, B and C depending on the requirements. Trade show self-adhesive deposit marks can then be placed on all the packaging at the trade show for the appropriate deposit value, independent on the content and the type of packaging material used.
Once the trade show is over, you may return any unused trade show self-adhesive deposit marks to Dansk Retursystem no later than 3 years after the labels were supplied. In this situation, you will be refunded the deposits and fees but not the cost of producing the marks.
Dansk Retursystem always decides whether you fulfil the requirements for using a trade show self-adhesive deposit mark. Contact our Quality and Packaging Department for more information.
