There are no current batteries consultations; however, the European Union are currently reviewing the Batteries Directive, which may lead to stakeholder consultation.
In December 2018, Defra published the awaited Resources and Waste Strategy “Our Waste; Our Resources: A Strategy for England”, which contained a number of new policies. The document included a commitment to review Batteries legislation (consultation expected mid-2020) as well as a number of other topics. Further information can be found on our Resources and Waste Strategy page.
The European Commission has recently adopted two reports regarding the Batteries Directive. Further details can be found here.
