Evaluation Roadmap – Directive on Batteries and accumulators and Waste Batteries and Accumulators

The evaluation will address all substantive provisions in the Directive and will consider all relevant aspects, i.e. legal (e.g. legal base, internal coherence, consistency with other legislation in approaches, terminology and legal concepts), environmental (e.g. main environmental impacts of batteries along the whole life cycle of batteries, efficiency of measures), economic and social (e.g. access to (critical) raw materials, costs and benefits).The objective of the Batteries Directive is to contribute to the protection, preservation and improvement of the quality of the environment by minimising the negative impact of batteries and waste batteries. It also aims at ensuring the smooth functioning of the internal market by harmonising requirements concerning the heavy metal content and labelling of batteries and accumulators.
