Button and Coin Battery Laws Now in Effect

Laws surrounding the supply and sale of button and coin batteries, and products containing button and coin batteries, have now come into effect.

Any products containing these batteries must be tested to ensure they comply with the new standards, which outline certain requirements such as the product being safe from children opening the battery compartment. Suitable warnings are also required on packaging of any applicable products.

All businesses in the supply chain of these products are liable to these laws. These laws do not apply to products which are not intended for sale to the broader public or for children. Click HERE for a fact sheet outlining all new requirements.
