This Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document on Directive 2006/66/EC on batteries and accumulators and waste batteries and accumulators updates and replaces an earlier version of the document. It takes account of a number of amendments to the Directive including those agreed under Directive 2013/56/EU, which entered into force on 30 December 2013 and which the Member States are required to transpose into national law by 1 July 2015.
The document is principally intended to help competent public authorities and economic operators interpret the provisions of the Directive in order to ensure compliance with the Directive’s requirements. However, the Directive is addressed only to the Member States, the rights and obligations of private parties exclusively flow from the measures enacted by the authorities of the Member States to implement it.
