Summary

Regulation 2023/1542 replaces Directive 2006/66/EC as the new battery regulation for the EU. It applies to all batteries. Unlike Directive 2006/66/EC, Regulation 2023/1542 mandates that all batteries placed on the market must be CE marked. The regulation aims to reduce the carbon footprint and decrease the waste associated with batteries, whilst also addressing the social concerns involving the acquisition of raw materials used in batteries.

Manufacturers of batteries must ensure that recycled materials are used in their new batteries, whilst producers must impose a take back system to allow the separate collection and processing of waste batteries, allowing for further recycling.

From 18 February 2027, all industrial, electric vehicle (EV) and light means of transportation (LMT) batteries above 2 kWh in capacity must have a ‘battery passport’, which details specific information about the individual battery.

A due diligence policy is enforced to ensure that suppliers source raw materials from acceptable sources and do not cause damage to the environment or violate human rights.
