(b)if—

(i)the end-user is not able for any reason to return waste industrial batteries to another producer under sub-paragraph (a); and

(ii)the waste industrial batteries which are the subject of the request are of the same chemistry type as the new industrial batteries that the producer placed on the market for the first time in the United Kingdom in the compliance period or any of the three preceding years;

(c)if the end-user is not able for any reason to return waste industrial batteries to another producer under sub-paragraphs (a) and (b).

(3) The producer must publish details of how an end-user of industrial batteries should request the take back of waste industrial batteries by that producer under paragraph (2)(b) and (c)

(a)on or before 1st December in the year preceding the compliance period; or

(b)if the producer does not place industrial batteries on the market for the first time in the United Kingdom until after that date, within 28 days of the date of such placing on the market.

(4) The details required to be published under paragraph (3) must—

(a)be published in such a manner as is reasonably likely to bring them to the notice of end-users of industrial batteries; and

(b)give details of the chemistry type of the industrial batteries placed or intended to be placed on the market by the producer during the compliance period and the three preceding years.

(5) Where the compliance period in respect of which the producer has obligations under paragraph (2) is a year prior to 2012, the period of four years referred to in paragraphs (2)(b)(ii) and (4)(b) is replaced by the following—

(a)where the relevant compliance period is the year 2010, that compliance period and the year 2009; and

(b)where the relevant compliance period is the year 2011, that compliance period and the years 2009 and 2010.

(6) In this regulation “chemistry type” in relation to a battery, means the type of the battery by reference to its main chemical constituents, for example, lead, nickel-cadmium, nickel-metal hydride or lithium.

Collection: automotive batteries

36.—(1) This regulation applies to a producer of automotive batteries in respect of each compliance period during which the producer places such batteries on the market for the first time in the United Kingdom.

(2) The producer must collect waste automotive batteries free of charge and within a reasonable time from a final holder of automotive batteries when requested by that final holder during the compliance period.

(3) The producer must publish details of how final holders of automotive batteries should request the collection of waste automotive batteries from that producer under paragraph (2)

Asesiadau Effaith

Impact Assessments generally accompany all UK Government interventions of a regulatory nature that affect the private sector, civil society organisations and public services. They apply regardless of whether the regulation originates from a domestic or international source and can accompany primary (Acts etc) and secondary legislation (SIs). An Impact Assessment allows those with an interest in the policy area to understand:

  • Why the government is proposing to intervene;
  • The main options the government is considering, and which one is preferred;
  • How and to what extent new policies may impact on them; and,
  • The estimated costs and benefits of proposed measures.
