Association of European Automotive and Industrial Battery Manufacturers

A number of various chemical substances and materials are used in batteries which are necessary for the chemical reactions which generate an electrical current. However, a number of these substances can be harmful if not handled or transported in the proper manner. For this reason, EUROBAT has prepared a number of guides on the safe handling and transport of batteries to ensure a minimal impact on the environment and to the health of the public, the most recent of which is the ADR 2017. Please contact the EUROBAT secretariat for further information on this document.

Please also note the new EUROBAT - RECHARGE website on international transport regulations for batteries.
