Switzerland Status of New Battery Legislation

Published March 10, 2009


Switzerland intends to implement many provisions of Directive 2006/66/EC on batteries and accumulators through an Ordinance on the reduction of risks linked to chemical products. There is a draft of the Ordinance available, but it has not yet been officially published in the Federal Gazette.  If adopted, it would enter into force on 1 May 2009.

The Federal Office for the Environment (OFEV) would be entrusted with the task of supervising the program.
