International Coordination

PRBA often coordinates its activities with the Korea Battery Industry Association (KBIA), Battery Association of Japan (BAJ), and RECHARGE – The European Association for Advanced Rechargeable Batteries. This includes participation in a meeting known as the World Rechargeable Battery Regulatory Forum (WRBRF) that is held every two years. It is an opportunity to share information between three leading battery associations on issues impacting the industry. Subjects covered during the WRBRF include – but are not limited to – battery technology, transportation, recycling, safety, standards, fire codes, and import/export tariffs.
