Safety & Logistics Guidance

B.I.G.’s Safety & Logistic’s group have produced voluntary Guidelines for the Safe Handling, Transportation, Collection, and Storage of Large Used Batteries to proactively address safety concerns in a circular system, and in recognition of the lack of local guidance (on safe handling, collection, transportation, and storage of large batteries after their initial use). The project collated learning from international research and local stakeholders to provide recommended voluntary best practice guidance for industry, regulators and the wider community.

Please note, these guidelines are not law and do not supersede the regulatory frameworks for dangerous goods and hazardous substances or any manufacturer’s guidelines related to their new product or the removal or handling of their product
