Reporting packaging to FTI and the EPA


If your company is an obligated packaging producer, you have a statutory obligation to report the packaging you place on the Swedish market to the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). FTI offers free assistance with reporting to its customers. You also need to report your packaging volumes to FTI.

Reporting to the EPA


If your company is an obligated packaging producer, your company must be registered with the EPA. You also need to report your packaging volumes to them. We can take care of reporting free of charge for our customers. The only requirement is that you sign a supplementary agreement regarding reporting to the EPA. The agreement does not involve any additional costs.

If you have already signed the reporting contract, it will be saved under ‘My Documents’ on the customer portal. You also need to login to the customer portal no later than February each year and confirm the volumes to be transferred to the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.

The EPA’s requirements

Reporting to FTI


You must report your packaging volumes to FTI so that we can know how much we have collected and recycled on behalf of your company. All paper (including cardboard and corrugated cardboard), plastic and metal packaging must be reported to FTI (except for the items listed below). Cushioning materials inside shipping packaging as well as accessories, such as lids and bottle caps, are also packaging.

How to calculate packaging volumes


There are several methods for calculating packaging volumes. Here are some suggestions: use your sales statistics, use your purchased volumes of packaging materials, use your own template or create a template together with us.

Reporting dates


You report to the EPA once per year. If you let us take care of your reporting, we will keep track of the date for you. For reporting to FTI, we send you reporting documentation every month, quarter or year, depending on the volume of your packaging materials.

 

Reporting deadlines and payment terms for FTI


Data is reported to us monthly, quarterly or annually, not later than the 25th day of the month after the end of the reporting period. Payment terms are 30 days after invoice date, and overdue reporting will be subject to a late fee in accordance with the applicable agreement. Late payments will be charged interest in accordance with the reference rate of the Swedish Interest Act.
