In the new accreditation (which came into force on 01/01/2008), the Interregional Packaging Commission required that VAL-I-PAC should NO LONGER pay incentives to industrial unpackers which could not prove that, as responsible for packaging, they were complying with the provisions of the Cooperation Agreement.
