Shipping Lithium Ion Batteries for Cordless Power Tools and Electric Garden Equipment

Implementation of Dangerous Goods Transport Regulations

Transport of lithium ion batteries is in the scope of Dangerous Goods Transport Regulations. Therefore many specific requirements have to be respected for their transport. The safe carriage of dangerous goods is important to shippers and transport companies and not least for every party involved in the chain of lithium ion battery transport.

The following notes, based on recommendations of EPTA and ZVEI, have been produced to provide initial practical guidance to the regulations for the carriage of lithium ion batteries especially for cordless power tools and gardening equipment.

These provisions must be fulfilled by the shipper for every commercial shipment of lithium ion batteries.
