Registration, collection and recycling obligations for batteries producers

Producers of portable batteries

Producers must finance the municipal collection of waste portable batteries through a tax of about EUR 804 per tonne put on the market payable from January 2009. In addition they must finance – individually or collectively – the take-back and treatment of WBAs from municipal collection points. Individually-collected amounts can be deducted from the collective obligation. They must also finance information campaigns with an information value equivalent to the amount they place on the market. Collective systems can assume the legal take-back obligation of producers.

Producers of industrial batteries

Individual compliance is permitted. Alternatively, producers can join a collective scheme.
