Royal Decree 106/2008 of 1 February on batteries and accumulators and the environmental management of their waste and its subsequent Royal Decree 710/2015, establishes the technical and ecological quality conditions that must be respected in the collection and management of this waste, in accordance with Directive 2006/66/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 September 2006 on batteries and accumulators and batteries and accumulators waste.
For the purposes of the application of this Royal Decree, the Collective System of Expanded Producer Responsibility may establish Collaboration Agreements with Local Bodies and Autonomous Communities.
The purpose of signing the Framework Agreements is to establish the collaboration framework that must govern the activity of the signatory Collective Waste Management Entities of the Collective Waste Systems of Batteries and Accumulators (hereinafter the SC of RPA) and their relationship with the local entities and the Autonomous Community in accordance with their competences, in order to ensure compliance with the requirements of Royal Decree 106/2008, on Batteries and Accumulators and Environmental Management of their waste, in Royal Decree 943/2010 of 23 July, which modifies it and other legal regulations that apply to this type of waste.
Ecopilas maintains a fluid communication and constant dialogue with the different Administrations to encourage the signing of these framework agreements.
For those Communities that do not have a framework agreement, Ecopilas offers Local Entities to collaborate with Ecopilas through the signing of bilateral Agreements. These agreements will be voluntary and their objective is that the financing of the management of these wastes with specific regulations is assumed by the producers of batteries and therefore without cost for the local entities.
