BERR begins second battery consultation

A second Government consultation on the European Union Batteries Directive started May 12 2008, the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) has announced. It will examine requirements for putting new batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries), and appliances containing batteries, on the EU market. The six week consultation will be more prescriptive than the initial consultation, which ran from December 2007 to March 2008.
