Green dot required on packaging?

#1
Dear readers,

we are willing to certify a Medical device in the EU. We were wondering if we have to add the green dot to our device packaging?

we are a little bit confused. We have understood that some countries the use of the green dot is mandatory but others use their own "green dot" symbol/system. Thus, should the green symbol attached in the packaging for some countries and not attached in other countries?



thanks in advance

Which green dot are you considering?

If it is the green Dot on US medical grade power cords, then it is not required in EU.

If it is the green dot or "Der Grune Punkt" used to indicate that you have joined a waste collection system. you can not apply the symbol unless you have joined an appropriate scheme. The attached links is a little old, but will give you an overview.

hi chris1 price,
yes I was refering to the green dotrefering to a waste collection system. I'll read the links that you provide but I anticipate that every country has its own waste collection system and you have to join the different systems and may be different symbols we'll be used

thanks!
