Distribution and Transport of Lithium Batteries – UN 38.3 Test Summary mandatory from 1 January 2020

On 16, Dec 2019 | In News @en | By Lisa Schmidt

Starting from 1 January 2020, manufacturers and distributors of lithium batteries are obligated to document the report on battery testing according to the UN 38.3 test and make it available to battery users.

Before lithium batteries or products containing lithium batteries are sold to users and transported for this purpose, manufacturers and distributors must obtain information on the testing of the batteries from the supply chain.

The required test summary must comply with the UN regulation. This requirement applies to all types of lithium batteries (including button cells) and covers various types of transport, such as road, rail, inland waterway, maritime transport and air cargo.

Furthermore, manufacturers and distributors are must actively pass this information on to users.

We will be happy to assist you in implementing these requirements.
