EU Batteries Regulation Workshop

The publication of the EU Batteries Regulation in 2023 introduced a new era where for the first time the entire life cycle of batteries will be regulated.

The Regulation will apply to all batteries including portable batteries, electric vehicle batteries, industrial batteries, SLI batteries and batteries for light means of transport (e.g. electric bikes, e-mopeds, e-scooters). This workshop will provide critical information for non-EU battery manufacturers and EU producers alike.


Monday 16 September

Organised by

The legislation is complex, with 366 pages and 96 Articles covering new requirements such as carbon footprint declarations, recycled content requirements, conditions for performance and durability, responsible sourcing demands and changes to labelling.

An understanding of the new requirements, that will apply to any producer wishing to place batteries on the EU market, is essential as it will shape not only EU market access but also future product design and supply chain decisions.

During the workshop, practical advice will be provided that will be critical for non-EU battery manufacturers and EU producers alike. The focus will be on the new requirements for lead automotive and industrial batteries.
