A small retailer is a natural person or legal entity selling products and goods to the public at one or more points of sale with a combined sales or consumption area of less than or equal to 200 m².

335With regard to small retailers, it must be emphasised that packaging responsibility for the service packaging used does not lie with the party that is responsible for packaging the product, but with the party that places this packaging directly on the Belgian market. One example is when a small retailer does not buy his service packaging (e.g. checkout bags) in Belgium, but goes directly abroad to obtain supplies.
