Mastering the CE Marking Requirements (August 2024) for Industrial Batteries



Key steps to develop your required documentation and carry out required testing

In July 2023, the European Union (EU) approved the new EU Battery Regulation (Regulation 2023/1542), which replaces the existing Battery Directive (2006/66/EC) which will mostly expire in two years.

The regulation introduces important changes and requirements to improve the sustainability and safety on batteries. In August 2024, the first CE marking requirements will come into force and producer as well as economic operator have to prepare the relevant documentation and proofs of testing to demonstrate compliance with the legislation.
