A few important points

  • this table refers to the cost of the declaration with effect from the second year of membership (tariff as at 01.01.2016)
  • retroactive membership
    A special retroactive charge is levied in the first year of membership.
    The VAL-I-PAC system is open to companies which wish to regularise their position with respect to the take-back and information obligation.
    VAL-I-PAC has to apply retroactive membership for the five calendar years prior to the year of joining.

    A funding contribution will be calculated for each year of retroactive membership, plus an indemnity (based on the statutory rate of interest on late payment). In addition, a once-only joining fee of 25% is calculated on the basis of the contribution for the year of joining.
