How to Import Battery Scrap ?

As per the provision under Rule 5 Batteries (M&H) Rules, 2001 and as amended in 4th May 2010, the responsibility of granting registration to importers of the new lead acid batteries has been transferred from Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change to Central Pollution Control Board. Accordingly, importer shall get registered with CPCB for a period of 5 years. As per rule 5(ii), Member secretary or any officer designated by the Central Pollution Control Board is the prescribed authority for issuance, cancellation or refusal of registration. CPCB has been granting the registration to importers of new lead acid batteries as per the procedure recommended by MoEF & CC in its letter dated 22nd June, 2010. To improve the transparency in the import of the battery process, CPCB has developed web based software and was functional since March, 2013. In “Batteries Registration and Management System (BRMS)” importer can submit their application through online either fresh/new application as well as renewal, file half-yearly returns and undertaking. In spite CPCB, SPCB and Custom Authorities can also verify the status of importer through BRMS portal.
