Federal government adopts new battery law in Germany from 2021 on

On 20th of May 2020 the German government launched the draft of a new battery law with quite a number of important changes. The law should come into force on 1st of January 2021.

In addition to some important adjustments for the battery take-back systems, manufacturers and distributors of batteries have to register with a new supervising authority.

Stiftung EAR which is currently also responsible for WEEE registrations in Germany will take over these registration requirements in the future.

We will keep our customers and all interested companies informed about further developments.
