Discarded batteries and accumulators, whether sold individually or built-in in a device, are subject to the take-back obligation. This obligation stipulates that the end seller, the middleman and the manufacturer/importer are responsible for the collection and processing of used batteries and accumulators. They are under a legal obligation to take back the product discarded by the customer.
When selling batteries you are also under a legal obligation to take back used batteries for recycling purposes, without any purchase obligation.There are two ways of meeting this obligation:
Are you not only a seller of batteries but also an importer or manufacturer who brings batteries onto the Belgian market? Then you must also meet the take-back obligation for manufacturers. Go to the manufacturers menu for full details.
