GB/T 16716 "Packaging and Packaging Waste" is divided into 7 parts.
- Part 1. General rules of disposal and utilization;
- Part 2. Means and program for evaluation;
- Part 3. Prevention by source reduction;
- Part 4. Reuse;
- Part 5. Recoverable by material recycling;
- Part 6. Recoverable by energy recovery;
- Part 7. Recoverable by composting and biodegradation.
This part is the first part of GB/T 16716.
The main technical contents of this part are formulated with reference to EU Directive 94/62/EC on Packaging and Packaging Waste. The terminology and the specified heavy metal content index in this part are equivalent to 94/62/EC. The main technical differences between this part and 94/62/EC are as follows. - CHANGE the format and presentation of the layout applicable to EU
regulations to the format and presentation applicable to Chinese standards; - It does not specify the recycling regeneration rate and recovery rate of various packaging materials;
- CHANGE the incineration commands and landfill directives quoted by the directive to the corresponding mandatory standards in China.
This part replaces GB/T 16716-1996 ?€?General rules of packaging waste
disposal and utilization?€?.
As compared with GB/T 16716-1996, the main changes in this part are as
- DELETE clause 4 ?€?Classification?€? of the original standard;
- CHANGE the clause 5 ?€?Basic requirements?€? of the original standard to the clause 4 ?€?Requirements?€? of this part, including basic requirements, reuse, recycling and final disposal;

4 Requirements
4.1 Basic requirements
4.1.1 The design, manufacture and use of packaging materials, containers and aids shall facilitate the recovery, sorting and disposal of them after becoming wastes.
4.1.2 Packaging shall reduce the amount of materials used to fully reduce the amount of packaging waste under conditions that adequately protect the
product, meet safety, hygiene and environmental requirements, and meet
consumer needs.
4.1.3 The total content of heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury and hexavalent chromium in packaging and packaging materials shall not exceed 100 mg/kg. In the event of irreplaceability, the use of hazardous chemicals shall be carried out under foreseeable conditions, and the amount shall be controlled to an appropriate degree, to reduce the adverse influence of the packaging wastes on environment during recovery.
4.2 Reuse
Reusable packaging shall meet the following requirements.
- The physical properties and technical characteristics of the packaging shall be such that it can be used or reciprocated several times under normal
foreseeable conditions of use;
- There shall be stable and reliable technical measures, used containers are kept clean and hygienic, to ensure the safety and health of operators;
- The container shall be easy to unload or empty, its volume or quantitative meets the expected requirements, the original function can be maintained through washing and maintenance operations;
- When the packaging is no longer reused as waste, it shall meet the
5.3.3 Closed barrels, cans or similar packaging containers shall be dismantled, the tinned metal packaging containers and materials shall be removed of tin in advance.
5.4 Glass packaging container
5.4.1 Glass packaging containers are treated as required by 4.3.1.
