Batteries

REPIC operates an Environment Agency approved Portable Battery compliance scheme providing market leading battery compliance services to producers.

What is a battery?

A battery or accumulator is 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 either industrial, automotive or portable batteries, and there are different producer obligations for each type. See guidance below for more information.
