Batteries Compliance

Simplifying battery compliance

Why is Battery Compliance Important for Your Business?

If you make, import, or sell batteries in the UK then you have legal obligations to comply with various environmental regulations.

Non-compliance is an offence and enforcement action may be taken.

Your responsibilities

Am I obligated?

You are an ‘obligated’ battery producer if you:

  • Have a UK presence and either:
    • Import batteries (including those within products) into the UK and then selling them wholesale in the UK, and/or:
    • UK manufacture of batteries selling to the public or to retailers

What do I need to do?

You must:

  • Register as a battery Producer
  • Report data on how many batteries you placed on the market
  • Meet your portable battery recycling obligation (if applicable)
  • Finance the collection, treatment, and recycling of waste portable batteries (if applicable)
  • Take-back waste industrial and automotive batteries (if applicable)


ERP can manage all of this for you and ensure that your obligations are met.
