This Order designates Directive 2006/66/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on batteries and accumulators and waste batteries and accumulators and repealing Directive 91/157/EEC (“the Batteries Directive”) as a relevant directive for the purposes of paragraph 20(2) (c) of Schedule 1 to the Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999 (“the Act”).

The relevant directives are Council Directive 96/61/EC concerning integrated pollution prevention and control, Council Directive 75/442/EEC on waste, as amended, and any other directive of the Council of the European Communities designated by the Scottish Ministers for the purposes of that paragraph by order made by statutory instrument.
