In order to be able to label primary batteries with the Nordic Ecolabel, these must, among other things, meet the limit values for the content of lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd) and mercury (Hg).
For rechargeable batteries (secondary batteries) there are also limit values for arsenic (As).
The method is based on the "Battery Industry Standard Analytical Method. For the determination of Mercury, Cadmium and Lead in Alkaline Manganese Cells". The determination is made with ICP-MS.
The results are delivered in the form of a report.
