Batteries must be EAR registered as of 1 January 2022

This applies not only to portable and automotive batteries but also to industrial batteries. The transition period for battery manufacturers ends on 1 January 2022 – take action now!

From 1 January 2022, all manufacturers of batteries of any kind (portable, industrial and automotive batteries) must be registered with the EAR foundation (Stiftung Elektro-Altgeräte Register/EAR). This is reported by the EAR foundation in its current information letter. This also applies to manufacturers who have already been reported to the Federal Environment Agency. The relevant notice does not replace the registration with the EAR foundation. The data is not transferred from the Federal Environment Agency to the EAR foundation.

At present, the processing time for registration applications is at least 6 weeks. Yet this is expected to increase significantly towards the end of the year as the volume of orders increases. If you have batteries to register, please be sure to contact the take-e-way consulting team in good time.

Please note: Batteries contained in your electrical appliances must likewise be registered.

The consultancy team at take-e-way will be pleased to assist you. Please call +49/40/750687-0 or send an e-mail message to beratung@take-e-way.de.
