However, you do have the option of taking over the reporting responsibility from your Dutch resellers. This allows you to report all battery declarations of your products within the Netherlands at once. If you decide to use this option, send us an Excel file with your Dutch resellers, for whom you will do the battery declarations, and their address details.
