Well you have the parts already, except the bolts for the bracket. I'm curious as to why these parts were not remounted. I'd expect the battery has been replaced with a non-BMW battery that is not the correct fitment (and that brings up the whole battery registration issue). The "safety device" is the Styrofoam pad that fits in between the battery and the rear bulkhead of the car to protect the battery during a rear end collision. The hold down bracket holds down the battery more securely. All you are talking about are two bolts that are $.25 each from BMW, or just go to realoem.com and find the correct size bolts (M6x12 - Metric 6MM by 12 MM long) and get them at a hardware store.
