What are my choices for compliance?

If you are a producer placing more than one tonne of portable batteries on the UK market you must register with an approved battery compliance scheme:

  • Within 28 days of placing portable batteries on the UK market or within 28 days of forming the intention to do so;
  • By 31st October in each year for the following compliance year

For details of the REPIC Battery compliance scheme, please click here for more information

If you are a producer placing one tonne or less of portable batteries on the UK market you must register with the Environment Agency within 28 days of placing portable batteries on the UK market or within 28 days of forming the intention to do so, and provide an annual declaration of your portable battery sales by 31st January of the year following. The Environment Agency small producer registration website can be found here https://npwd.environment-agency.gov.uk/Public/BatteriesHome.aspx

If you are an industrial or automotive battery producer, you do not need to join a compliance scheme to meet your obligations. However, if you have a portable battery obligation and join a compliance scheme you can report your industrial and automotive battery sales and waste battery collections through your compliance scheme.
