|ICS Code (Graphical symbols for use on specific equipment):||01.080.20|

This International Standard defines the conditions of utilization of the recycling symbol of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) associated with the chemical symbols indicating the electrochemical system of the battery. This standard applies to lead-acid batteries (Pb) and nickel-cadmium batteries (Ni-Cd).
NOTE - The term "battery" as used throughout this standard covers batteries constituted of several single cells as weil as single cells distributed and used separately.
In all cases cells have to be marked individually with the exception of those constituting a battery or a subassembly that cannot be dismantled. For example, traction batteries and stationary batteries should be marked on or near the type plate only.
The object of this standard is to present recommendations concerning the size of the symbol and its location on the surface of the cells and batteries or on the packages of button cells.
