With the end of the summer break, and the resumption of political business in Brussels, negotiations on the new Battery Regulation continue. Preparations are currently underway for the third political trialogue meeting between the Council of the European Union, the European Parliament and the European Commission, which is scheduled for October.
The meeting is the first of its kind under the new Czech Council Presidency, which took over from France on 1 July. So far, negotiations between the three institutions have focused on the first articles of the regulation, especially the scope and definitions.
In the coming weeks and months, discussions will then turn to the end-of-life management of batteries, including the provisions on extended producer responsibility, which are covered in chapter VII of the regulation.
The current plan is to conclude the negotiations before the end of the year.
Landbell Group company European Recycling Platform continues to actively engage in the legislative process.
