Are you a Battery Producer?

Are you a Battery Producer?

You are a producer if, irrespective of the selling technique used, you place batteries, including those already in appliances or vehicles, on the UK market for the first time, on a professional basis.

This means a transfer by sale, loan, hire, lease or gift that moves the ownership from a:

  • UK manufacturer to a UK distributor
  • UK manufacturer to the final UK consumer or user
  • manufacturer outside the UK to an importer in the UK or the person responsible for distributing the item in the UK
  • manufacturer, or formal representative, direct to the final user or consumer
