PPWIS Agent Services. These are packing and waste record keeping services which include making entries in registers, completing bills of lading and log journals in PPWIS, a unified Product, Packaging and Waste Record Keeping Information System. According to the environmental protection laws in force in Lithuania, manufacturers and importers are obliged to keep records of packaging and hazardous waste, as well as submit reports in the unified Packaging and Waste Record Keeping Information System PPWIS.
All manufacturers and/or importers of packaging and/or products must register in the PPWIS Directory of Manufacturers and Importers, even if the packaging quantities they generate do not exceed 0.5 tons per calendar year. According to the environmental protection laws, an importer is understood to be a person who imports and/or brings packaging filled with products to the territory of Lithuania from another country and has their activities registered in accordance with the procedure established by legal acts. Businesses that generate hazardous waste must also report this waste in the PPWIS system, regardless of the amount of hazardous waste generated.
The subject matter of PPWIS is not a subject of accounting and thus not a part of the Accounting Service package. Therefore, in relation to the PPWIS Agent Services, a separate PPWIS Agent Contract with Žinius UAB is required. Before concluding the Contract, an assessment of the Client’s PPWIS objects and obligations will be carried out. The Client will also be provided with a consultation and given recommendations with regard to packaging and waste record keeping.
