Abstract


For the purposes of the law, packaging means "all products, regardless of the material from which they are made or their nature, intended for the retention, protection, handling, distribution and presentation of goods, from raw materials to processed products, from producer to user or consumer. The non-returnable item intended for the same purposes is also considered packaging”. Traceability is a tool used by regulators to manage risk in several supply chains, including supply chains with goods derived from genetically modified organisms, human blood, seafood products, toys and hazardous waste. This tool can help support a variety of statements ranging from concern for nature to consumer satisfaction and health. The current legislation establishes that economic operators in the market have important obligations regarding the achievement of annual targets for recovery and recycling of packaging waste, as well as obligations related to the reporting of quantities of packaging waste managed to the competent authorities.In order to achieve the recycling targets imposed by Law no. 249/2015 on the management of packaging and packaging waste, companies have three working options, and one of them is the traceability file.
