On August 24, 2022, the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change of India published and enforced the Battery Waste Management Rules, 2022. These Rules cover all types of batteries, regardless of chemical, shape, volume, weight, material composition or application, except for those incorporated in equipment related to the protection of security interests or in equipment designed to be sent into space. Producers who manufacture or import batteries or appliances that incorporate batteries have an Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) setting out collection targets and target rates for the use of recycled materials in new batteries. In addition, companies engaged in the recycling of waste batteries must register and achieve the resource recovery rate target set for the dry weight of collected waste batteries. These targets are defined for portable, electric vehicle, automotive, and industrial applications. The Batteries (Management and Handling) Rules, 2001 was repealed with the promulgation of these Rules.
