Are you bringing batteries or battery-operated devices onto the Belgian market?
Did you know you are subject to the legal take-back obligation for used batteries? Belgian law stipulates that every importer who brings batteries or battery-operated devices onto the Belgian market, is also responsible for the collection and processing of those used batteries. Other obligations include reporting to the regional authorities.
This is quite a task but fortunately Bebat is there to help.
As a compliance organisation, Bebat has established a collective system enabling its members to meet the take-back obligation.
That is why affiliation is such a good idea!
It is easier than you think!

The environmental legislation in each of Belgium’s three regions stipulates that every manufacturer or importer who brings batteries or accumulators onto the Belgian market must comply with a large number of producer responsibilities in general and the take-back obligation in particular. What does this mean for you?
Here you will find an overview of the applicable legislation.
