Legal com­pli­ance for bat­te­ries and alter­na­ti­ve drives

With the goal of cli­ma­te neu­tra­li­ty and the accom­pany­ing elec­tri­fi­ca­ti­on, not only the num­ber and appli­ca­ti­ons of indus­tri­al bat­tery solu­ti­ons and elec­tric vehic­les have mul­ti­pli­ed in recent years. This is also asso­cia­ted with new tech­ni­cal and legal requi­re­ments for the enti­re bat­tery indus­try. No mat­ter whe­ther it is a ques­ti­on of pro­duc­tion and using bat­tery pro­ducts for the first time or whe­ther bat­te­ries are to be given a second life cycle (“2nd life”), both cus­to­mer requi­re­ments and the legal frame­work con­di­ti­ons are beco­ming more exten­si­ve and com­plex. The same is true for other alter­na­ti­ve dri­ve con­cepts, such as hydrogen.

In this field, our com­pe­tence team pro­vi­des spe­cia­list advice on your ques­ti­ons and dai­ly chal­lenges in prac­ti­ce – from the eva­lua­ti­on of the legal requi­re­ments to be ful­fil­led in deve­lo­p­ment and pro­duc­tion (inclu­ding in the are­as of pro­duct safe­ty and homo­lo­ga­ti­on), through ques­ti­ons of per­mis­si­ble dis­tri­bu­ti­on chan­nels and neces­sa­ry appr­ovals, to the draf­ting of con­tracts with cus­to­mers and sup­pli­ers, in order to best mini­mi­se exis­ting risks, also in the area of (pro­duct) liability. 

Our com­pe­tence team advi­ses and sup­ports you on all legal issues rela­ting to bat­te­ries and alter­na­ti­ve drives.

Plea­se feel free to cont­act us at any time if we can sup­port you or if you have any ques­ti­ons. We would be hap­py to explain our approach to you in a per­so­nal con­ver­sa­ti­on, ans­wer your ques­ti­ons and crea­te a sui­ta­ble offer for your company.
