The EU Battery Directive sets up common EU rules on management of batteries and accumulators and waste batteries and accumulators. The rules are motivated by environmental concerns. The overall objective of the directive is to minimise negative impacts on the environment from batteries and accumulators and waste batteries and accumulators and in this way contribute to protection, conservation, and improvement of our environment.
Producer responsibility has authority in the so-called Battery Order. This legislation applies to all producers and importers putting batteries and accumulators on the market in Denmark.
Producers and importers must clarify themselves whether or not they are subject to producer responsibility. DPA-System will guide producers and importers in the scope of the rules on producer responsibility.
