Newsletter Waste Management Law, Whistleblower Directive

The last 1.5 years have been influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects.

Nevertheless, time does not stand still.

There are extensive legal news, which we would like to inform you about in our newsletter.

As you know, we mainly represent technical professions and institutions as well as companies with a high research, development and technology focus as well as their proponents and experts; also doctors, civil technicians, engineers, experts, etc.

Another focus of our law firm is the legal advice of companies with an affinity for plastics – plastics in particular are subject to strict and increasing regulations due to the latest EU developments.

We would like to report on this – in particular on the last amendment to the Austrian Waste Management Act (AWG), which was passed in the National Council in 2021, and also on the amendment to the Packaging Ordinance.

The Whistleblower Directive is also of great importance, although there is still no final Austrian implementation.

You can also find details on this in the attached newsletter.

We are at your disposal for questions and detailed information.

A lot has also happened in our law firm. Lukas Weinhandl, LL.M. (WU) joined as a lawyer. Details on his professional career can be found in the newsletter.

We wish you interesting reading.
