What Do The Certifications On My CSB Battery Mean?

19 June 2024  |  Anya

Confused by all the symbols and logos on a CSB battery? Find out what they all mean.

When researching or purchasing a battery you will notice many safety, recycling and manufacturing logos, generally printed somewhere on the battery itself.

As components can be toxic and/or corrosive these certifications are very important, so you can be assured of excellence in manufacturing processes and conformance of the battery to safety and environmental standards.  However, it can be difficult to establish what all the different certifications mean and who they have been issued by.

If you would like to know the meaning of any of these, or view the relevant certificates, please see below for details.

Regulatory Certifications

CE Mark – Mark of European Conformity





The CE mark certifies the battery as compliant with EU legislation and confirms permission to trade within the EU.

Requirements for CE endorsements are:

  • The battery has been assessed prior to entering the marketplace
  • The battery satisfies legislative requirement for trade
  • The battery complies with environmental, health, safety, and all stated directives
  • The manufacturer has had the battery assessed by an independent verification body.

UL Recognised mark

Issued by Underwriters Laboratories, a safety assessment organisation.

This certifies the battery as safe to use as a component within a larger mechanism or system and ensures proper housing and safe and efficient use when used as a component part.

The certification is mainly intended for industrial and workplace use and environments to ensure the safety of processes, workers and installers. It may require extra testing to ensure the housing or casing is robust to the required standard.

RoHS Compliance Label

Do Not Dispose
