What are the core responsibilities for making the battery passport accessible and maintaining information accuracy?

The main responsibilities for the accessibility of the battery passport and maintaining information accuracy within the battery passport include the following main tasks:

  • assigning a unique identifier: assigning a unique identifier for each battery that is linked to the QR code affixed to the battery. This unique identifier facilitates access to the battery passport and ensures traceability of battery information.
  • update and store information: Ensuring that the information contained in the battery passport is accurate, complete and up to date. This includes regular updates to reflect any changes in the status or characteristics of the battery during its life cycle. In addition, the data contained in the battery passport must be stored securely to ensure data integrity and accessibility.
  • compliance with legal requirements: Compliance with the requirements set out in Articles 77 and 78 of the EU Battery Regulation, which describe the responsibilities of economic operators in the management of the battery passport. This includes compliance with certain technical and operational standards to ensure the effectiveness and reliability of the passport.

By fulfilling these core responsibilities, actors involved in the battery value chain can ensure the accessibility, accuracy and reliability of the information stored in the battery passport. This in turn supports transparency, accountability and sustainability in the battery industry.
