The ARN Management Plan was established in order to fulfil the manufacturers’ responsibility for car batteries. On behalf of full participants in the ARN Management Plan, ARN is responsible for the collection and processing of end-of-life propulsion batteries. ARN also takes responsibility for reporting to the government.
However, not all car importers participate in this collective system. There are automotive brands that have chosen to organise a closed-loop system within their own organisation. They then organise the collection, processing and possible second life for propulsion batteries for themselves. The car dismantling companies can also contact ARN for non-affiliated brands: we then put them in touch with the relevant importer.
