Web Seminars to Help Explain Battery Shipping Rules

The transportation industry has an increased awareness and sensitivity toward the unique hazards associated with shipping batteries. Because battery fires are difficult to extinguish, a fire onboard an aircraft due to improperly packaged batteries could result in a "high consequence" event.

Both the domestic hazardous materials transportation regulations and international rules for shipping batteries have undergone significant changes over the past two years, according to a Jan. 27 press release from Lion Technology. Many batteries that were previously unregulated or under-regulated must now be thoroughly evaluated to determine hazard potential. Detailed packaging and communication standards must be followed to the letter.

Adding complexity to the issue is the fact that shipping requirements vary greatly, depending on the mode of transport and the type of battery. Ensuring that all shift workers know the specific rules they must follow when shipping batteries is a great challenge for many industries. Battery shipping regulations affect a wide array of industries from manufacturers and part suppliers to freight forwarders and distributors.

In response to the concern and confusion, Lion Technology is offering a series of live Web seminars to help ensure that battery shippers understand their new regulatory obligations. The seminars will cover the regulations for lithium batteries, wet and dry, non-spillable, and battery shipped in equipment and each modes of transportation (ground, air, and vessel).
