The Journey to Battery Stewardship

The journey to establishing a battery stewardship scheme began in 2013, with momentum shifting into higher gear in 2018 with a clear direction and the design of a draft scheme. 2019 was a time of significant consultation and industry engagement and allowed the initial discussion paper to evolve into a solid conceptual scheme design.   In 2020 BSC was successful in its application for Authorisation by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
