ACCC have published a Guide for business on the application of mandatory standards for button/coin batteries. The standards are mandatory from 22 June 2022.

The guide has been designed to be read in conjunction with the Standards, and should not be used as an alternative to the Standards.

Button/coin batteries generally operate using one of the 4 chemistries: lithium, alkaline, silver oxide and zinc-air.

In industry, the term “coin” is associated with lithium batteries and the term “button” is associated with non-lithium batteries.
