EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of these Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations 2009 (S.I. 2009/890) (“WaBAR”), which partially implement Directive 2006/66/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on batteries and accumulators and waste batteries and accumulators (OJ No L 266, 26.9.2006, p 1).

Regulation 2 inserts regulation 5A in WaBAR so that an appropriate person may delegate the function of signing documents in accordance with those Regulations to another person.

Regulation 4 amends regulation 47 of WaBAR to remove the requirement that an application for approval of a proposed battery compliance scheme include an operational plan.

Regulation 8 omits regulation 66(4) and (5) of WaBAR to remove the requirement that an approved battery treatment operator or approved battery exporter provide an independent auditor’s report to the appropriate authority on or before 31st May in the year following the relevant approval period.

A full impact assessment of the effect that this instrument will have on the costs of business and the voluntary sector is available from the Producer Responsibility Unit, Defra, Nobel House, 17 Smith Square, London, SW1P 3JR and is annexed to the Explanatory Memorandum which is available alongside the instrument at www.legislation.gov.uk.

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.
