Reporting portable batteries that have been exported from the UK

Posted on 29th November, 2018

The Batteries Regulations 2009 have been amended to allow producers to deduct portable batteries that are exported outside of the UK.

The change will take effect as of the forthcoming compliance year of 2019.

Producers of portable batteries who are currently registered with BatteryBack now have an opportunity to revise their placed on market data submissions for 2017 and 2018 by deducting any exports that took place within each compliance period.

The EA deadline to accept these data amendments for 2017 and 2018 is 28th February, so any data changes for 2017 and 2018 must be provided to BatteryBack before this date.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss further as this may reduce your future compliance costs!
