Domande Frequenti


What is the minimum size of the QR-code to print on the packaging? And what is the lettering to combine with it?
We suggest not to go below 1 cm per side of the QR-code. The code can be inserted in our EAD-logo with the green leaves, or you can add a lettering, such as: “Read the QR-code to get the disposal information for this packaging” (minimum size of the lettering: 6).
What lettering should I combine with the barcode?
The minimum lettering to combine with the barcode can be as follow: “Scan the barcode with the app Junker to get information concerning the correct disposal of this packaging”
Does the Digital Environmental Label replace the recycling symbols on packaging?
EAD fully replaces the recycling symbols on packaging for those products intended for the final consumer, also giving additional information.
Is the Digital Environmental Label exhaustive?
Not only EAD by Junker is exhaustive, but it also goes further the requirements given by law and by the guidelines of CONAI (National Packaging Consortium of Packaging Producers and Users). In fact, it gives geolocated disposal information, specific for every Italian municipality, thanks to its geolocation system. A printed label cannot have such functionality.
Does the law allow producers to resort to a digital version of the Environmental Label?
The Ministry for the Environment has fully recognized the use of digital tools with this note.
How can I deal with the unsold stock that still has the old label?
On May 21st, 2021, the so-called Law Decree for Support (Conversion Law no. 69 of the Law Decree no. 41, March 22nd, 2021) has been released on the Official Journal.
Among the amendments made during the process, there is also the suspension of the obligation to put the Environmental Label on packaging until December 31st
