B2B Compliance prefers Budget Pack as compliance scheme provider

Waste Electrical and Electrical Equipment compliance scheme, B2B Compliance has teamed up with compliance solution provider Budget Pack in order to ensure all of its members fully adhere to the Batteries Directive.

After reviewing the eight schemes applying for approval under the regulations, B2B Compliance believed Budget Pack will offer the best value for its 470 members.

The compliance scheme decided to review the schemes on behalf of its members which may have little time to understand the compliance schemes available before having to commit to one by 15 October.

B2B Compliance project director David Burton said: Having made the decision not to offer battery compliance ourselves, we felt it was important to provide support to our members that have obligations under the new legislation. By assessing the levels of service, knowledge, market positioning and ethos of each organisation, we decided that Budget Pack would provide a best value approach of personal service, efficiency and competitiveness.

Out of B2B Compliances 470 members, 20 are obligated under batteries.

Budget Pack managing director Steve Clark said: Were committed to providing the optimum solution to match the requirements of each individual company we take on.

The Batteries Regulations have been introduced to reduce the 600 million portable batteries that currently end up in UK landfill sites each year. Set targets aim to ensure 25 per cent of these batteries are recycled by 2012, which then rises to 45 per cent by 2016.

The compliance schemes are required to put in place an adequate battery collection infrastructure in order to match their members aggregated obligations to recycle waste portable batteries. The Environment Agency is currently ensuring that only schemes with appropriate operational plans are approved.
