Emsur Poland is now certified to print DPG marking on drinks packaging


Emsur has joined the DPG-System set up in the German market to fulfil the mandatory deposit on one-way drinks packaging, in accordance with the requirements of the German Packaging Ordinance.

Madrid, 19th July 2021. – On 28th June Emsur Poland passed the internal audit conducted by DGP, Deutche Pfandsystem GmbH, that allows it to produce and sell shrink sleeves and labels for the German beverages market from now on. This certification provides special authorisation to print the DPG one-way deposit stamp for shrink sleeves and labels that beverage brands are obliged to include in their packaging for the German market, in accordance with the  country’s Packaging Ordinance.

The DPG system was set up in Germany in 2005. DPG provides the legal and organizational framework for settling deposits (deposit clearing) between companies participating in the system.  To this end, DPG has developed a set of standards for a uniform labelling procedure that enables automatic collection of one-way drinks packaging subject to a mandatory deposit. The system places the obligation on manufacturers, distributors and producers of packaging or its design elements as is the case of EMSUR.

In view of the prime importance of the marking procedure and its relevance in terms of security, label printers and packaging manufacturers wishing to produce DPG labels or packaging must enter into a licensing agreement with DPG, as a so-called “User DPG Ink” and must undergo a location-related certification process. Emsur, having obtained this certification, is now positioned as a benchmark flexible packaging provider for key beverage companies in Europe.
