Shipments of lithium batteries must be prepared by persons with adequate instruction and labelled and packaged according to their DGR classification (Class 9 miscellaneous dangerous goods UN number) and applicable IATA packaging instruction:
Changes taking effect in 2016 to these packaging instructions include the following:
There are heavy penalties for non-compliance with the DGR, including unlimited fines and a 2 year term of imprisonment. Companies should therefore ensure that they fully understand the DGR and have a system in place to monitor and manage the evolving requirements. They should be able to demonstrate due diligence in the identification and execution of the appropriate lithium battery packaging instruction, which should include written procedures and regular compliance checks.
