Focus on… Moldova

The concept of extended producer responsibility (EPR) was introduced in Moldova in 2016 by Law No. 209 On Waste, which brought the provisions of national legislation in line with the EU Waste Framework Directive 2008/98/EC.

The Law was followed by the implementing legislation: Decree No. 586 Approving Regulation on Batteries and Accumulators and Waste Batteries and Accumulators (published in August last year), which will enter into force on 28th February 2021.

According to the Decree, producers that introduce, manufacture, sell/resell or import batteries and accumulators (including those integrated into devices or vehicles) into the Republic of Moldova will be responsible for the management of waste generated by their products.

Producers of batteries and accumulators must achieve the following minimum collection rates: 25% by 2023 and 45% by 2025. The obligation can be implemented in two ways: either individually or by transferring the responsibilities to a collective scheme which is authorised by the Environmental Agency.

For more information on the new obligations, and how they will be supervised and enforced, request a regulatory tracking report from Landbell Group.

Moldova is one of the countries covered by Landbell Group’s Regulatory Tracking Reports. Find out more about the reports here.
