New IATA Lithium Battery Guidance for 2017

Posted on 12/16/2016 by Roger Marks

Keeping lithium battery shipments up to date with changing ground and air regulations is one of the biggest challenges facing dangerous goods professionals in 2017.

On December 15, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) released a new 2017 Lithium Battery Guidance Document to help lithium shippers prepare compliant packages.

The new IATA lithium battery guidance provides crucial definitions for shippers, a useful Frequently Asked Questions, and a lithium battery flow chart for both lithium ion and lithium metal batteries.
