Austria has implemented the EU Battery Directive 2006/66 of 6 September 2006 through the Ordinance of the Federal Minister of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management on Waste Prevention, Collection and Treatment of Spent Batteries and Accumulators (the "Battery Ordinance") and by amending the Austrian Waste Act.

The Battery Ordinance was adopted on 15 May 2008, and it entered into force on 26 September 2008. The Austrian Minister of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management is responsible for administering and enforcing the requirements of the Ordinance. In accordance with the amendment of the Battery Directive, the Ordinance provides that batteries and accumulators that do not meet the applicable requirements must not be placed on the market after 26 September 2008.
