About  the EU Battery Regulation

The EU Battery Regulation encompasses a comprehensive set of rules and requirements established by the European Union (EU).


On July 28, 2023, the EU Commission published the new EU Battery Regulation (2023/1542) concerning batteries and waste batteries, which replaced the EU Batteries Directive (2006/66/EC) and took effect on August 17, 2023.

The new legislation came into effect on February 18, 2024 and introduces updated requirements focused on improving the sustainability and safety of batteries and battery-powered products throughout their entire lifecycle.
