Software Demonstrator

The software demonstrator brings the concept of the battery passport through the entire lifecycle to life for the first time. It also tests the technical feasibility of a digital product passport system.

Battery Passport Content Guidance

Achieving compliance with the EU Battery Regulation and increasing sustainability and circularity.

Main Content Guidance

Carbon footprint specific documents

Main Content Guidance
Main Content Guidance

This document provides a detailed perspective on the battery passport content reporting requirements as per the EU Battery Regulation and beyond. It is the first publicly available comprehensive aggregation and interpretation allowing economic operators and other battery value chain players to prepare for the battery passport implementation.

Data Attribute Longlist
Data Attribute Longlist

The data attribute longlist includes all data attributes required (and suggested) for the battery passport alongside definitions as well as further relevant data dimensions. This overview can serve as a first basis for and facilitates the technical demonstration and implementation of the battery passport within the own organisation.

Carbon Footprint Rules
Carbon Footprint Rules

This document provides accounting rules to calculate company-specific carbon footprints of the battery ‘Distribution’ and ‘End-of-life and recycling’ life cycle stages. The rules are proposed as a complementation to the GBA GHG Rulebook, thus providing a cradle-to-grave Battery Carbon Footprint Rulebook.

EOL Allocation Analysis

This insights report highlights the impact of the methodological choice on the carbon footprint declaration. It includes a comparative assessment of the three main end-of-life allocation approaches and their implications on the carbon footprint in the context of the EU Battery Regulation.

Position Paper

Content requirements of the EU Battery Passport

Recommendations to the European Commission by the Battery Pass Consortium

This document addresses clarification needs and presents recommendations by the Battery Pass consortium on battery passport content requirements as laid out in the EU Battery Regulation. It builds on our insights in the Battery Passport Content Guidance and is directed towards the European Commission incl. related institutions such as the JRC.

Technical Document

Technical Framework Specification for the Digital Product Passport System

A recommendation for standardisation of the European Digital Product Passport System (DPP-System) with particular specifics for the Battery Passport.

This document provides a comprehensive background architecture, called “Standard Stack”, which is essential to select, evaluate and elaborate standards for the technical DPP-System. It addresses the major interoperability issues and presents the elements of the Standard Stack, required for a secure, interoperable and reliable data exchange and provision across different sectors, e.g. for electrical vehicle batteries.
