What does Valipac do for you?

What your working day would look like if Valipac did not exist? For example, you would have to collect your packaging material from all your customers. And have them recycled via a waste collector. And have to insist on receiving your recycling certificates there.

Fortunately, Valipac takes over these obligations from you! Being a Valipac client is the guarantee that your company is in compliance with the legislation for commercial and industrial packaging.


Your challenge: fulfilling your obligations as a producer

Your company has become a customer of Valipac because it is subject to extended producer responsibility. All companies that produce packaging waste in Belgium by marketing or importing packaged goods are subject to this responsibility.

The Extended Producer Responsiblity applies to your company in case :

  • you are producing and packaging goods to be marketed in Belgium (Type A),
  • you import packaged goods in order to market them in Belgium (Type B),
  • you import goods that you unpack within your business (Type C).

The Extended Producer Responsibility requires you to provide proof every year that your company achieves the recycling rates prescribed by the Belgian authorities for all your packaging. Often this is an impossible task to comply with on your own, especially in the first two of the above-mentioned cases.

Our contribution: we relieve you of these obligations

Thanks to its unique position in the market, Valipac collects data on the quantities of packaging brought into the market by its clients and as well as on the tonnages that are collected and recycled by the affiliated waste collectors.

We compile and process these data and provide the Belgian authorities with an annual report showing that Valipac’s clients collectively meet their legal obligations with regard to industrial packaging.

Valipac offers a collective response to Extended Producer Responsibility:

  • we compile the figures on the quantities of industrial packaging brought to the Belgian market by our clients
  • we collect the figures sent in by waste management companies on the quantities of packaging waste collected and recycled by them
  • we compile these figures in order to calculate the overall recycling rate for all our clients together
  • we report the aggregated data to the Interregional Packaging Commission (IVCIE).

Your declaration in a nutshell

Group declaration

Companies that legally belong to the same group can submit one single declaration. This must be reported to Valipac on the “Group Declaration” form. The main member who makes the declaration annually reports the names and the company numbers of all its group members, as well as the percentage of packaging responsibility that all these companies represent in the declaration.

The simplified declaration

Companies from whose annual declaration does not exceed over 25 tonnes of single-use industrial packaging have the possibility to introduce a simplified declaration.

The first declaration determines whether you are eligible for this administrative simplification. You prepare a detailed declaration for your first membership year. This declaration will be used as a basis for calculating the returns for the next 4 years. During this period, you only need to report your turnover annually before 28 February via myDeclaration.

Your declaration and your contribution will be calculated by Valipac according to the evolution of your turnover. In year 5, you will again submit a detailed declaration.



This tool is reserved for businesses that are clients of both Fost Plus (household packaging) and Valipac (industrial packaging).

If you choose this declaration system, note that the only possible way to make detailed declarations is via product sheets, even for your industrial packaging.
