Your substances


On 8 November IMCO will consider the compromise amendments to the draft opinion on the proposal for a Regulation concerning batteries and waste batteries. The Rapporteur, Mr Antonius Manders (EPP), aims to make use of the leverage of the internal market to ensure a level playing field between economic operators established in and outside the EU.

The amendments broadly support the aim of introducing and applying incisive environmental and social requirements to batteries, extending the scope of the proposal to batteries for light means of transport, focus on standardisation, and enhance the transparency of information for the benefit of consumers. IMCO will vote on the file on 9 December 2021.
