New Battery Regulations – Effective February 2024

The new European Battery Regulations, effective from February 18, 2024, aim to enhance battery sustainability and recycling across the EU. Key provisions include stricter waste management, extended producer responsibilities, and new battery categories. The regulations enforce end-of-life requirements, recycling targets, and reporting obligations, applying automatically across EU countries. Collection targets for waste batteries are set to increase, and specific measures for lithium recovery are outlined. The regulations also introduce mandatory recycled content levels and the concept of a ‘battery passport’ for detailed battery information. Stakeholders are encouraged to engage with implementation efforts in Ireland.
