New EU Directive 2006/66/EC Battery

New EU Directive 2006/66/EC
on Batteries and Accumulators and their Wastes

The new European Union “Battery Directive” 2006/66/EC on Batteries and Accumulators and Waste Batteries and Accumulators became effective on 26 September 2006.

It officially repeals the 1991 Battery Directive 91/157/EC and gives European Member States until 26 September 2008 for the transposition.

All Member States shall ensure that manufacturers design appliances in such a way that waste batteries and accumulators can be readily removed. Appliances into which batteries and accumulators are incorporated shall be accompanied by instructions showing how they can be removed safely and, where appropriate, informing the end-user of the type of the incorporated batteries and accumulators.
