57 views

The European Commission announced that the revision of the the 2006 Battery Directive came into force. Adopted by the European Parliament and Council in 2006, the revised Batteries Directive should be transposed by Member States into national law from 26/09/2008. This revised text aimed to improve the collection, recycling and treatment of batteries in the European Union. The directive also makes producers responsible for the management of batteries once they become waste. Barbara Helfferich, spokesperson of Stavros Dimas, Member of the EC in charge of Environment, explained that the aim of the new text was to deal with hazardous materials and to harmonize the way Member States deal with such materials.
