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.
