What you should know

If you sell batteries in your store as a permanent part of your product range, you are obliged to take batteries back pursuant to the Act No. 542/2020 Coll., on end-of-life products. ECOBAT will be your partner in complying with the legal requirements.


Overview of obligations of final vendors

  • Purchase and sell batteries originating solely from producers inscribed in the List of Producers of the Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic,
  • Inform the customers about the possibility to return used batteries,
  • Take used batteries back directly at the selling point throughout the opening hours regardless of their brand and date of launch on the market, for free and without any obligation for the customers to buy new goods.
