Point of sale
Distributors, when supplying portable batteries or accumulators, shall be required to take back free of charge used portable batteries or accumulators that consumers would like to dispose of.
The costs generated by the collection and recycling of batteries and accumulators are not separately communicated to end-users when new portable batteries and accumulators are sold.
All natural or legal persons whose registered office is located outside Luxembourg and who sell batteries and accumulators (including those integrated into appliances, vehicles and other means of transport) directly to users located in Luxembourg are assimilated to importers.
As such, they are subjected to the same obligations and have the opportunity to join Ecobatterien. The association endorses their obligations and they are asked to submit a declaration of their put on the market.
For more details on registration and reporting, please see the "How to join" and "Declaration" sections.
