What has changed? StevensAero has suspended all sales and shipping bound for Germany.
Why did we do this? Recent changes, by the German government, to its packaging law (LUCID) will go into effect July 01, 2022. These changes will require our company to register with and pay a license fee to the German government, for the packaging that our product ships in. Our failure to comply with these new regulations will impact final delivery (you won’t get your product) and become a source of needless liability (fines of up to 200,000 euros). Unfortunately, compliance with the new regulation is more burdensome than the collective benefit we derive from servicing German customers.
When does this go into effect? Effective immediately, Stevens AeroModel will no longer fill orders with Germany selected as a final shipping destination.
