Packaging Compliance Services We Offer


Data management

The Regulations state that all data recorded and submitted to the EA must be ‘as accurate as reasonably possible’. If you require assistance measuring the weights of the packaging you handle, then we are happy to help. We can also audit and develop your packaging database and depending on your current system, we may be able to help you simplify your data collection, saving you valuable time and money. Smart Comply has a wide ranging database of thousands of packaging weights. Smart Comply exclusively own a packaging matrix, a database specifically designed for Paper merchants, which provides standard weights for packed paper products.
