Collection and Recycling Arrangements in United Kingdom
The Batteries Directive 2006/66/EC was transposed through the Batteries and Accumulators Regulations (Placing on the Market) 2009 (SI 2164/2008) and the Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations 2009 (SI 890/2009).Producers who place on the UK market one tonne or less of portable batteries per year do not need to join a Batteries Compliance Scheme or pay for the collection, treatment and recycling of batteries.
SCIEX places less than one tonne of batteries on the UK market per year. SCIEX has registered as a small producer of portable batteries in the UK.
