Regulations for the transport of batteries
Stringent requirements apply to the transport of batteries. These are documented in the ADR, an international agreement on the transportation of dangerous goods. Among other things, it includes the requirements that must be met for packaging during transport. ARN collaborates with battery-collection companies that comply with ADR requirements.
Regulations for the storage of batteries
Current regulations for the storage of drive batteries are not sufficiently unambiguous. Work is currently ongoing on the so-called PGS37 (a series of publications on dangerous substances), which includes regulations for the storage of batteries. This should be ready sometime in 2022. In the relevant legislation, reference will be made to the PGS37.
