The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) will restrict the production, import and sale of batteries with mercury from next month to reduce the mercury hazard to the environment and human health, EPA officials said yesterday. Starting on Sept. 1, battery manufacturers and importers must present test reports proving that their products contain less than 5ppm of mercury before they are permitted to manufacture or import the products, the officials said. After the new policy comes into force, the EPA will send officials to inspect and sample batteries at supermarkets, night markets and other vending outlets, the officials said.
