“This within the framework of the Extended Producer Responsibility Law (REP) which, in an unprecedented manner, has demanded said requirement that does not exist for other priority products (such as containers and packaging, which already have their own regulation) and that It produces an unnecessary overregulation, since the Law itself incorporated fines and sanctions in the case of not having a duly authorized management system,” they specified.
