Collection and handling of old batteries
Whoever distributes batteries (equipment, vehicle or industrial batteries) or imports these into Austria for the purpose of their own work must satisfy various take-back, collection and handling obligations in addition to the general requirements (ban on certain substances, removability, etc.). This has been stipulated by law in the batteries ordinance (Batterien-VO).
Distributors of equipment and vehicle batteries must guarantee that these batteries are taken back, recycled and handled by participating in a collection and recycling system.
Distributors of industrial batteries can also transfer their obligations from the battery ordinance in Austria (in German) to a collection and recycling system. Alternatively, they can conclude individual agreements with the purchasers of industrial batteries on the financing of their collection and handling.
