This document is intended to clarify which European legislation is applicable to batteries after the transposition of the newly published RoHS Recast Directive 2011/65/EU and the implementation of the Batteries Directive 2006/66/EC in the EU Member States.
The legal assessment and statements from EU Institutions show that:
-The Batteries Directive is the most specific and therefore prevailing waste management legislation applicable to all types of batteries
-The marketing restrictions of certain substances listed in the RoHS Directive and used in Electrical and Electronic Equipment do not apply to batteries.
