According to retailers, the bill prepared by the ministry on the responsibility of manufacturers for the future disposal of goods and packaging creates risks of trade going into the gray zone. 

In particular, they are not satisfied with the provision prohibiting the sale of goods that are not included in a special register within the waste accounting system.

"The application of this prohibition in the conditions proposed by the draft law with a high degree of probability can lead to empty shelves in retail outlets and a reduction / nullification of the choice in the range of online stores," the message says.

The Ministry of Natural Resources registered the appeal and promised to consider it in the manner prescribed by law.

Earlier it was reported that the government is preparing legislative changes to ban the use of non-recyclable products.
