The guidelines have been developed in good faith by a broad representation from the entire flexible packaging value chain. The documents are offered free of charge, for all to adopt and use on a voluntary basis. The guidelines are not a legal requirement, but a tool intended to provide advice and support to those designing flexible packaging to be circular.
