Palpa to permit the labelling of small can batches

05.07.2016

Palpa will permit the labelling of small can batches from the beginning of July. Cans can be labelled either fully or partly. Labels can be used if the annual sales of the product are less than 100,000 pcs. Currently Palpa approves UPM Raflatac Vanish RP 76 E as a label material. The markings of labelled cans are subject to the same requirements as printed cans.

Updates to return system rules

29.01.2016

Palpa has prepared updates to return system rules during 2015. The return systems have each started during different decades, and thus updates and harmonizations were considered necessary.

The updated rules are effective from 1 February 2016.

The updated rules are better suited to today’s return system operations. The updates do not cause any major changes in normal operations and no changes in the operational instructions are made.

Issues in rules have been reorganized and presented according to operational chronology, and similar features in the systems have been harmonized in the texts. Many definitions have been specified, new definitions have been added and some terms have been renamed. For example, a Deposit Payer is now called a Member.

Issues belonging to the operational instructions for the return system or official regulations have been removed from the rules. In these cases, the rules refer to instructions available at our website or to official regulations.

We invite you to read our new rules in the Material bank on our website.
