Frequently Asked Questions

I have to change my password. Are there any conditions I have to take into account?

For security reasons, the password needs to be changed every 6 months. Please change your password by taking into account the following conditions:

  • The password consists of at least 10 characters.
  • The password is different from the 2 previous passwords.

TIPS:

  • We recommend you not to use obvious passwords such as your first name, name or username. A strong password can be created by using for example a combination of 2 random words, both letters and numbers, uppercase and lowercase letters, ...
  • To increase the security level by connecting, we recommend you to connect with electronic identitycard (eID) or with a certificate.

Do I choose FostPack or ePack?

Please be aware that the choice that you make is extremely important. In fact, the choice you make is final. It will not be possible to switch to another application at a later stage.

With FostPack, all Fost Plus members can submit an online declaration. Every declaration system that fits the member’s needs will be available in FostPack. This implies that FostPack will also offer the possibility to use a simplified declaration system form if your company meets the requirements.

With ePack, members of both Fost Plus and VAL-I-PAC can submit a joint detailed declaration for both organisations. The only declaration possible will be the detailed declaration based upon packaging sheets.

What does a registration as a Responsible person in charge mean?

One single person only can register as the Responsible person in charge. As soon as the Responsible’s request has been validated by Fost Plus, he or she will carry the following responsibilities:

  • The Responsible person in charge can create and manage users. He or she will also define to what other contracts (= membership numbers,…) the users have access to and what their rights will be
  • The Responsible person in charge is responsible to modify the user data should a change have occurred in a company related matter. 
  • The Responsible person in charge is responsible for blocking a registered user should the latter no longer have access to certain data as a consequence of company related changes.
  •  ...

It is important to read attentively the 'Criteria for the use of an online declaration' in order to have all necessary information with regards to the responsibilities of the registered user.

How to log in the first time with eID or certificate?

The standard procedure includes login with username and password.

If he wishes, the Responsible person in charge can increase the security level by connecting with eID or with a certificate.

The method defers depending on whether you wish to login with eID or with certificate for 1 company or for more companies:

 

eID/certificate for 1 company (characterized by 1 company number/VAT number)

First of all the Responsible person in charge needs to change the security level in the ‘User management’.

After the modification in the ‘User management’, you need to link your data to your account, the first time that you connect with eID/certificate. This is possible by clicking on the button ‘First login with eID /certificate’.

Once connected, you can simply login with your eID/certificate instead of with your username and password.

 

eID/certificate for more companies (with different company numbers/VAT numbers)

If you wish to use your eID/certificate for more companies you need to take next steps:

1. Link your eID/certificate to your account. This is possible by clicking on the button ‘First login with eID/certificate’.

2. Send the data of the different companies, for which you want additional security, to Fost Plus by e-mail business.administration@fostplus.be.

Important: This security level is an additional security. When you connect, you’ll first need to identify yourself with your eID/certificate. Then you’ll have to log in with the username and password to indicate for which one of the companies you want to use the application.

 

Attention: In case of a new identity card or a new certificate, you’ll need to link your data again to your account by clicking on ‘First login with eID/certificate’.

What are the new features?

Mandates and weights can be uploaded via Excel or XML

On the screens ‘service packaging mandates From’ and ‘service packaging mandates To’ you can upload the companies that have received or given a mandate via Excel or XML, both in the menu and during the declaration.

You can also upload the weights for the existing mandates while creating the declaration.

You can find the manual and an example in the application by clicking on the buttons ‘Import mandates’ or ‘Import weights for mandates’.

In the menu ‘packaging sheet management’ you can, in first instance, only see the valid packaging sheets. In the menu ‘packaging sheet management’ you will see the valid packaging sheets first.

In the ‘Packaging sheet management’ a search result of ‘valid packaging sheets’ is active for the current  year.

If you want to see all the packaging sheets, the closed ones included, you have to click on the button ‘show all sheets’.

Adjust the product family in a new packaging sheet.

You can change the product family in a packaging sheet as long as it is not linked to a confirmed declaration.

From now on, some reports show the tariffs of the current year + 1 (as soon as the tariffs are available).

As soon as they are available, you can consult the new tariffs of the current year + 1 in the following reports:

  • In the menu : ‘reports’ – ‘detailed declaration’: overview with quantities and contribution.
  • In the menu ‘packaging sheet management’ – ‘overview details packaging sheets’ (on selection or after search).
Re-usable packaging

You can only link the weights of re-usable packaging to the specific product family with only re-usable packaging (B10, B20, B30, B40, B50, B60, B70). This reduces the risk of errors.
