Latest company news about The European Parliament and the Council adopted on July 12th, 2023 the new Regulation (EU) 2023/1542 concerning batteries and waste batteries

The European Parliament and the Council adopted on July 12th, 2023 the new Regulation (EU) 2023/1542 concerning batteries and waste batteries

The European Parliament and the Council adopted on July 12th, 2023 the new Regulation (EU) 2023/1542 concerning batteries and waste batteries, amending Directive 2008/98/EC and Regulation (EU) 2019/1020 and repealing Directive 2006/66/EC.   This Regulation is binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all EU Member States. It entered into force on August 17th, 2023 and already applies from February 18th, 2024. The present Battery Directive 2006/66/EC will be repealed on August 18th, 2025 with a few exceptions. The requirements of new Battery Regulation (EU) 2023/1542 has series significant changes comparing with Battery Directive 2006/66/EC, including: New classifications to all batteries based on the purpose of use. Newly added rule of CE marking and its conformity assessment procedure.   Adaption to laws related to new legislative framework, for example, obligations of economic operators and market surveillance activities. Strengthen policies and requirements on sustainability and environmental protection, for example, restriction of substances and performance and durability of batteries, carbon footprint and recycled content, labeling information on lifecycle and health, QR code and digital passport, due diligence on supply chain and removability and replaceability of batteries in end product etc.   This new Regulation applies not only to batteries, but also applies to batteries that are incorporated into or added to products or that are specifically designed to be incorporated into or added to products.   Market surveillance activities of new Regulation will be started from February 18th of 2024. Member States shall lay down the rules on penalties applicable to infringements of this Regulation by August 18th, 2025.   It’s highly recommended that customers of batteries and end-products incorporating batteries take actions as early as possible to adapt the design and production requirements of products to the new Regulation so that customers could avoid the risks that products may get stuck in customs etc. due to non-conformity with the new Regulation from February 2024 and not application the CE marking rule etc. from August 2024.   Battery Types   Portable batteries (including portable batteries for general use) sealed weight ≤ 5 kg not designed specifically for industrial use and neither an electric vehicle battery, an LMT battery, nor an SLI battery Example: laptop or power tool battery pack, 4,5 Volt (3R12), button cell, D, C, AA, AAA, AAAA, A23, 9 Volt (PP3) SLI batteries (starting, lighting and ignition batteries) specifically designed to supply electric power for starting, lighting, or ignition can also be used for auxiliary or backup purposes in vehicles, other means of transport or machinery Example: Car starter batteries LMT batteries (light means of transport batteries) sealed weight ≤ 25 kg specifically designed to provide electric power for the traction of wheeled vehicles that can be powered by an electric motor alone or by a combination of motor and human power, including type-approved vehicles of category L within the meaning of Regulation (EU) No 168/2013 not an electric vehicle battery Example: battery in E-Bikes, E-Scooter EV batteries (electric vehicle batteries) specifically designed to provide electric power for traction in hybrid or electric vehicles of category L as provided for in Regulation (EU) No 168/2013, that weighs > 25 kg, or specifically designed to provide electric power for traction in hybrid or electric vehicles of categories M, N or O as provided for in Regulation (EU) 2018/858 Example: hybrid vehicles, electric vehicles batteries Industrial batteries (including stationary battery energy storage systems) specifically designed for industrial uses intended for industrial uses after having been subject to preparation for repurposing or repurposing, or any other battery that weighs more than 5 kg and that is neither an electric vehicle battery, an LMT battery, nor an SLI battery Example: battery in energy storage system in private or domestic areas, UPS CE Marking Conformity   Sustainability, safety, labelling and information requirement.

New Service Fees & Annual CPl increase for Canadian ISED/IC ID certification in 1th April 2024

Important reminder ⚠️⚠️⚠️ The registration fee for Canadian IC has increased by 4.4% since April 1st, subject to the issuance date!         Canada Certification and Approvals Radio, Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (TTE) and all other electronic (digital) devices must comply with the Canadian standards. Radio Equipment usually requires Certification, whereas Terminal Equipment requires Registration (somtimes certified or registered togheter, in case of a cordless phone). A local person or company (legal entity) within Canada is required for certification. In case you don't have presence in Canada, LCS can provide access to a local representative. Each Company seeking Certification (the applicant), the manufacturer of the equipment (the factory or manufacturing site), the local representative (legal Canadian entity), Testlab (OATS or FAR) and Certification Body (CB) must be registered at IC and have a Company Number (CN) prior to Certification. Industry Canada Radio Certification Radio Equipment in Canada must comply with the Radio Standard Specifications (RSS), whereas the standards are categorized in Category I and II. Category I equipment requires Certification by a recognized Certification Body (CB) or by the Certification and Engineering Bereau of Industry Canada. LCS offers the service for Industry Canada Certification. Category II Equipent does not require Certification but the manufacturer or importer must ensure compliance with the appropriate standard(s); a test report shall be available and the equiupment shall be properly labelled. Receivers can either be classified as Category I or II, whereas Category I Receivers are tunable to any frequency in the band 30~950 MHz, or are housed together with Category I transmitters, or is a scanning Receiver. All other Receivers are Caterory II Equipment. Radio Equipment has been divided in different Types of Radio Equipment by Industry Canada, where some of the Radio Equipment is License Exempt . Testing is generally required for intentional and unintentional (conducted and radiated) emissions, and if applicable, also for Dynamic Frquency Selection (DFS), Specific Absorbtion Rate (SAR), and Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC). When applying for Certification, the ITU designation code(s) must be determined according to the TRC-43 specification. Certified Radio Equipment must be labelled with model number and proper IC ID: XXXXZ-YYYYYYYY and will be published on the IC website in the Radio Equipment List (REL). Industry Canada Terminal Equipment Approval Terminal Equipment in Canada must comply with the Industry Canada Terminal Standard Specifications (CS-03, part I:analogue; II:digital; III:terminals; IV:terminology; V:hearing aids; VI:ISDN; VII:modems and digital substrate equipment; VIII:DSL). Industry Canada maintains a list of network Network Connection methods, Equipment Categories , and types of Network Interfaces. Terminal Equipment Registration is based on a DoC procedure (self declaration). LCS offers the service for Terminal Equipment Registration accordig to all parts of the CS-03 standard. Approved Terminal Equipment must be labelled with model number and proper IC ID: XXXX-YYYYYY and will be published on the IC website in the Terminal Equipment List (TEL). Industry Canada EMC Approval Electronic Equipment in Canada must comply with the EMC and other requirements as specified in the Canadian Interference Causing Equipmnet Standards (IECS). For example, ITE equipment (digital apparatus) must comply with ICES-003 and labelled with: "This Class [*] digital apparatus complies with ICES-003" and "Cet appareil numerique de la clase [*] est conforme a la norme NMB-003 du Canada", where [*] refers to the applicable emissions, either Class A or B. Industry Canada Broadcast Equipment Approval Broadcast Equipment must comply with the Broadcasting Equipment Technical Standards (BETS), of which some are Broadcasting Certificate Exempt Radio Apparatus. Safety and Health Approval In addition, all Equipment must comply with the Electrical Safety requirements in Canada. Recognized approval marks in Canada include CSA, ETL, UL, which are also valid for the USA. Medical equipment may require registration at and approval under the Food and Drug Act from (regulated by) Health Canada .
