Waste Battery Compliance Reports
PBR can help to ensure you are compliant with legislation for the storage, recycling and disposal of waste batteries.
If your business manufactures or imports batteries or products that contain batteries it is important that you comply with the Waste Batteries Regulations and, under these, will classify as a “producer”. Aside from this, businesses who are responsible for the sale of quantities greater than 32kg of batteries each year to end users per year (excluding those within equipment) are also under an obligation to be compliant and will be classed as “distributors”.
Non-compliance can result in unlimited fines or imprisonment of up to 2 years.
