Upcoming changes for the Battery law in Germany

While most countries are currently working hard on the implementation of the WEEE open scope, Germany is taking major steps in changing the legislation for other types of products covered by extended producer responsibility. Following the introduction of the Verpackgesetz this year, the Batterygesetz is expected to follow suit.

One of the major expected changes is the introduction of a battery register similar to the EAR (elektro-altgeräte register) for WEEE. Producers would need to report the total put on the market and take-back of batteries in this register.

Apart from this registration producers will also be obligated to comply via organizations like CCR Rebat and ERP, as GRS (the Gemeinsames Rücknahmesystems and current largest battery compliance scheme) will shift its focus towards being a fallback system, and mostly performing research and development and information campaigns.

These legislative changes are still in development, so the direct practical implications for producers are not certain yet. If you want to receive updates on the future of the Batterygesetz, or other news regarding environment and producer responsibility, subscribe to the Pincvision newsletter!
