The amendment to the Battery Act (BattG) is to come into force on 1 January 2021.
A significant change for battery producers is the relocation of the battery producer register. According to the present legislation, the battery producer register (BattG-Melderegister) is currently located at the Federal Environment Agency (Umweltbundesamt).
When the new Battery Act comes into force, the Agency will entrust this task to the stiftung ear, which already maintains the register for manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment. Battery producers entering the German market at the beginning of 2021 must be registered with stiftung ear by 1 January 2021.
This also applies to battery producers whose data is no longer up to date with the Federal Environment Agency. Producers whose market participation has been duly notified to the Federal Environment Agency do not have to be registered with the stiftung ear until 1 January 2022. The participation in a take-back system for batteries is not affected by the obligation to register with the new battery producer register.
We are happy to support you in implementing your manufacturer obligations for batteries.
