Producer Information on batteries according to Section 4 (4) ElektroG3

All producers or distributors of electrical and electronic equipment containing a battery or accumulator are required to provide information to the end-user of the type and chemical system of the battery or accumulator and of its safe removal.

The basis for this is provided by Section 4 (4) of the new Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act version 3 (ElektroG3) scheduled to take effect on 1 January 2022 (previously this was to be found in Section 28 (2)).

By that date, you must already be prepared accordingly if you or your devices are affected.

A template for information under Section 4 (4) ElektroG is available here.

Feel free to use and complete the free template to meet your obligation to provide information.
