๐Ÿ”‹ Explore the Future of Battery Regulation: Join OPSS at the Exhibition! 


Embark on a journey into the heart of battery regulation with the Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS) at our upcoming exhibition. As the UK's national product regulator, operating under the Department for Business and Trade (DBT), OPSS is dedicated to ensuring safety, reliability, and environmental responsibility in every aspect of the battery industry. 


๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ Safeguarding Standards: Since our inception in January 2018, OPSS has been steadfast in its commitment to protecting consumers and promoting confidence in the marketplace. Responsible for regulating most consumer goods, excluding food, medicines, and vehicles, we oversee the entire lifecycle of products, from design and manufacturing to labelling and disposal. Our regulations serve as the foundation for safety and quality, ensuring that consumers can trust the batteries they purchase. 


๐ŸŒฑ Environmental Advocacy: At OPSS, environmental sustainability is a top priority. We enforce a range of environmental regulations, including battery takeback initiatives and efforts to combat illegal deforestation through responsible timber trade. As appointed regulators for battery-related regulations by the Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs (Defra), we're leading the charge in promoting sustainability and reducing the environmental impact of battery production and disposal. 


๐Ÿ”‹ Leading Battery Regulation: Step into the world of battery regulation and witness the expertise of our Environmental Supply Chain Assurance (ESCA) team in action. Tasked with enforcing battery-related regulations, our team ensures compliance with standards and regulations, from identifying prohibited materials to assessing performance and labelling compliance. Join us as we showcase our regulatory efforts and provide insights into industry compliance, offering guidance on navigating the complex landscape of battery regulation. 


As your trusted regulator, we're committed to fostering transparency, accountability, and sustainability in every aspect of battery production and distribution. Don't miss this opportunity to engage with us and learn how together, we can build a safer, more sustainable future for all.
