Batteries Compliance

Step into action and achieve responsible compliance with the Battery Regulations

The Waste Battery and Accumulator Regulations 2009 set out the requirements for waste battery collection, treatment, recycling and disposal for all battery types. The regulations affect producers, battery distributors (retailers), waste battery collectors, recyclers, and exporters.

You will be obligated as a producer under this legislation if your business first places batteries onto the UK market; this includes batteries contained within products such as in a laptop or mobile phone etc. Therefore, if you import electrical and electronic products containing batteries into the UK it is likely you will have an obligation under these regulations. Your company must also have a physical presence in the UK, such as a UK office, trading arm, or Post Office box to be considered a producer.

The types of batteries covered in the legislation are automotive batteries, industrial batteries and portable batteries. Your company is not considered the producer of batteries if you import them for your own use.
