BAT is short for waste batteries and accumulators and deals with legislation on producer responsibility for portable batteries, automotive batteries, and industrial batteries.
BAT rules entail a producer responsibility to the effect that producers and importers of batteries and accumulators must organize and finance take-back and management of waste batteries and accumulators. They must also register with and report information to a producer responsibility register.
Rules on producer responsibility for batteries and accumulators are administered by DPA-System.
