ABRI Packaging Standards
The Australian Battery Recycling Initiative (ABRI) have produced a Packaging Standard for Used Lead Acid Batteries (ULAB).
Meeting the standards set out in the document will ensure acceptance by the transporter and the ULAB recycling facility and avoid the inconvenience and cost of consignments being rejected.
Consignments can be rejected by the transporter at the point of pick up or by the ULAB recycling facility at the point of delivery. Rejected consignments will be returned to the supplier at their expense or remediated at the supplier's expense.
Under the Chain of Responsibility, anyone not complying with these Standards may be held liable for any non-compliance with legislative requirements.
