Lithium Batteries: Changes to the Regulations

Posted by Holly Waterhouse, March 29, 2022

Once again, shippers of lithium batteries by air must prepare for changes to the regulations that become effective from 1 April.

This time, the changes are buried in the multi-page packing instructions 965 and 968 of the 63rd edition of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations. Neither lithium ion nor lithium metal batteries can be sent under the Section II provisions.

The effect of this is that all lithium batteries sent on their own require the completion of a shipper’s declaration for dangerous goods, additional marking and labelling and also full dangerous goods by air training.

Make sure you are up-to-date with the changes to the regulations. We run lihitum battery by air, road & sea courses every week.
