New Regulation on Lithium-ion Battery Transportation will be Effective on 1, April 2022 Release Time:2022-04-13

According to the requirements of the "Dangerous Goods Air Transport Regulations IATA DGR (Version 63)" newly released in January 2022, small lithium batteries can only be transported by air in accordance with PI965 IA, PI965 IB, or PI968 IA, PI968 IB from April 1, 2021. Also, requirement of Part II of PI965 and PI968 are abolished and the lithium-ion labels and cargo aircraft-only labels that originally meet the requirements will also be abolished. This new change does not apply to air transport, ADR (road), RID (rail) or IMDG (sea) where the lithium battery is contained in the device or where the lithium battery is packed with the device.

There are three cases of single package transportation of lithium-ion battery products.

Case 1: Lithium battery watt-hour is less than2.7Wh, net weight is 2.5 kg.

Case 2: Cell watt-hour is more than 2.7Wh, but no more than 20Wh. And 8 cells are packed.

Case 3: Battery watt-hour is more than 2.7Wh, but no more than 100Wh. And 2 batteries are packed.

 

The new regulations are shown in the diagram below:

There are three situations for the transportation of a single package of lithium metal battery products.

Case 1: Lithium content is less than 0.3 g and net weight is 2.5 kg.

Case 2: Lithium content of the cell is more than 0.3g, but no more than 1g. And 8 cells are packed.

Case 3: Lithium content of the battery is more than 0.3g, but no more than 2g. And 2 batteries are packed.
