As a participant, you are obliged since 1 January 2022 to submit a monthly declaration for all home batteries/ESS you put on the market.
In order to be able to easily identify the declared home batteries/ESS, Bebat uses their unique serial numbers. This way, upon collection we can immediately see whether the environmental contribution has been paid for a specific battery.
This means that when you declare home batteries/ESS, you must also enter the serial number, brand and model of each imported battery.
This makes that the battery will be registered in our database, and you can be assured no additional cost will be charged later upon collection.
Enter the serial number
The serial number is a unique number associated with each home battery or ESS. When you file the declaration on MyBatbase, you will see an extra menu with the title “Details home batteries”. If you click through the menu, you will find a line for each battery module you have indicated where you can enter the serial number, brand and model.
Make sure you enter the serial number correctly! If we cannot find the number in the database when we collect the discarded home battery, there will be a charge associated with the collection*.
*Unless you can prove the battery was put on the market before January 2022.
Bebat has compiled a reference list of ESS/home batteries with useful information about the brand, model, weight and environmental contribution of the most common models; this is accessible to everyone.
Consult the list here
Enter nomenclature number
You will also be asked for the nomenclature number with your declaration. This is not the same as the serial number. The nomenclature is a list of all battery types known by Bebat. The nomenclature number is based on the chemical composition (lithium, salt water, lead, etc.) and the type of battery.
There are specific nomenclature numbers that should be used in your declaration of home batteries/ESS.

Enter the number, weight and reference number per battery module via the participant platform MyBatbase.
