European Recycling Platform (ERP), a Landbell Group company, has contributed to the new EU stakeholder consultation on batteries. The EU wants to modernize the batteries legislation to better reflect the latest market and technological developments. In addition, the EU hopes to better define key terms, and align the legislation with other waste legislation.
ERP is supportive of the overarching goals of the planned legislation and has offered comments on what it has identified as key factors to the success of the revision. Among the proposed recommendations, ERP welcomes the idea of changing the legal base of the legislation from a directive to a regulation to allow the highest level of harmonization across all member states.
