This paper aims to identify the main determinants that drove the successful implementation of this system in Brazil. Therefore, it was necessary to understand of the dynamics of the reverse logistics of agrochemical packaging, as well as to analyze the evolution of the consumption of agrochemicals. As main results, it was observed that the implementation of a legal apparatus has boosted reverse logistics and the mutual coordination of the agents involved, since the responsibilities of each sector are pre-set.
