What are batteries?

A battery or accumulator is considered to be any source of electrical energy generated by direct conversion of chemical energy and consisting of either:

  • one or more primary battery cells (non-rechargeable or disposable batteries); or
  • one or more secondary battery cells (accumulators or rechargeable batteries)

Batteries are classified as industrial, automotive or portable batteries.

REPIC makes the complexities of compliance accessible. The organisation takes time to explain the issue in simple terms, and represents members to Government and other stakeholders. No other producer compliance scheme offers the same benefits as working with REPIC. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

The best thing about being a member of REPIC is the clarity and transparency they provide in their service. They are cost-effective, reliable and ethical compliance scheme, and I would absolutely recommend them to other EEE producers.
