There are 2 separate actions:
1. Battery registration - letting the vehicle know that a new battery has been installed
2. Battery programming - coding in the details of the new battery type (FLA, AGM, Gel, etc.) and specifications
Most European automakers have adopted battery registration and programming because of increasingly stringent emission standards.
This includes the smaller players like Skoda.
May depend on the automaker, but for at least some you can do registration without proceeding to programming.
