● Lithium battery shipping packaging

  1. Although there are exceptions, these batteries must be transported within the limits of the regulations (packing instructions DGR 4.2). It must be packed in UN-marked packaging, defined in the DGR regulations on dangerous goods, in accordance with the relevant packaging instructions, and the packaging must have the relevant number.

  2. Packaging that meets the requirements, except for markings marked with the applicable correct shipping name and UN number, Category 9 hazard labels must also be affixed.

  3. The sender must fill in the dangerous goods declaration form; Submission of appropriate hazard certificates;

Provide a transport appraisal report issued by a certified third body and show that it meets the standard products (including the UN38.3 test, and the 1.2-meter drop packaging test).

● Lithium battery air transport requirements

1.The battery shall pass the test requirements of UN 38.3 and the package drop test at a height of 1.2 meters.

2.A UN-numbered hazardous materials declaration document provided by the sender.

3.The outer packaging shall be labeled with nine different hazardous materials and shall be marked with an operation label "For All Goods Carriage Only".

4.Shall be designed to prevent explosions under normal transport conditions and shall be provided with adequate external short circuit protection provisions.

5.If there is strong outer packaging, the battery should be protected from short circuits and the packaging should avoid contact with conductive materials that could cause a short circuit.

6.Additional requirements for installation of batteries in transport equipment:

a. The equipment shall be secured to prevent the battery from moving within the package, and the packaging shall be in such a way as to prevent the battery from being accidentally activated during transport.

b. The outer packaging should be waterproof, with an inner liner (like a plastic bag), and there is no more waterproofing in the construction of the device itself if this is the case.

7.Lithium batteries should be loaded on pallets to avoid strong vibrations during handling, and the vertical and horizontal sides of the pallets should be protected by corner guards.

8.Each pack weighs less than 35kg.

● Lithium battery marine transportation requirements

1.The battery must pass UN 38.3 test requirements and a 1.2-meter drop test.

2.The outer package must be marked with Standard 9 and the UN number for hazardous materials.

3.It is designed to prevent explosion under normal transport conditions and is equipped with effective measures to prevent external short circuits.

4.In a sturdy outer package, the battery should be protected against short circuits, and contact with conductive substances that can cause short circuits must be prevented in the same packaging.

5.Additional requirements for the installation of the battery in the equipment for transportation:

**a.**The equipment shall be secured to prevent movement within the package, and the packaging shall be carried in such a way as to prevent accidental activation during transit.

b. The outer package must be carried inside the inner fabric (eg, bag) unless it is waterproof or the construction material of the device already has waterproof properties.

6.Lithium batteries should be placed in the pallets to avoid strong vibrations during handling, and the horizontal and vertical sides of the pallets should be protected by corner guards.

7.The lithium battery loading container must be reinforced, and the reinforcement method and strength should meet the requirements of the importing country (such as the American Railroad Association<ARR>, the American Dangerous Goods Association, the North American Explosives Administration< B.O.E> The Federal Motor Transport Safety Administration, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Department of Transportation, and applicable provisions of the Maritime Dangerous Goods Regulations), if the shipper is negligent or unreliable, the container will be docked at the port and costs to stop work in excessive operating costs will include, cost of storage, container transportation costs, and repair assistance.

8.Exports to North America require the labeling of Class 9 dangerous goods in the specified position around the container

● Classification of dangerous goods

Dangerous Goods Classification Category I: Explosives. Like fireworks and firecrackers.

Dangerous Goods Classification Class 2: Liquefied gases and compressed gases. Take natural gas, for example.

Dangerous Goods Classification Class 3: Combustible liquids. For example, gasoline, ethanol, etc.

Category 4 of the Dangerous Goods Classification: flammable solids, spontaneous combustion, and flammable soft substances. For example, sulfur, and camphor.

The fifth category of hazardous substances: is oxygen and organic peroxides. magnesium peroxide, nitrogen.

Category 6 of the Dangerous Goods Classification: substances. gas, sulfur dioxide.

Dangerous Goods Classification Category 7: Radioactive articles. Radioactive elements such as nuclear uranium.

Category 8 of the Dangerous Goods Classification: Corrosive goods. For example, hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, and so on.

Dangerous Goods Classification Class 9: Other Dangerous Goods. Like batteries, and so on.

Dangerous Goods Transport Qualification Certificate: Must hold a permit for the transport of flammable and explosive dangerous goods.

● How dangerous goods should be packaged

Packaging requirements for class 8 corrosive articles:

A, The key to perishable packaging is to pay attention to the changes between materials and containers.

B, Use anacid resistance container for corrosive substances such as formic acid, seal it and store it in a wooden box.

C, Metal containers should be coated with an anti-corrosion coating to block corrosion of corrosive materials.

D, Hydrofluoric acid cannot use in glass containers, and will corrode. Plastic or metal drums should be used.

Class of explosive, flammable materials packaging requirements:

A, The explosion-proof barrel is equipped with a safety valve, and the pressure rise in the barrel can be automatically deflated.

B, Packed in plastic drums and loaded into iron or wooden boxes.

C, The weight of explosives in each barrel must not exceed 50 kg.

Types of toxic material packaging requirements:

A, The main requirements for toxic gas packaging in the dangerous goods logistics network are that it cannot be breathable and the packaging is tight.

B, Use asphalt sacks with tight seams for organic pesticides.

C, If packed in a plastic bag or asphalt paper bag, it must be packed in a bag or cloth bag.

D, There must be obvious signs of toxic substances.

E, Potassium dichromate and sodium dichromate, sturdy drums shall be used for packing, the mouth of the barrel shall be tight and leak-free, the walls of the barrel shall not be less than 1.2 mm
