IATA Expects Lithium Battery Ban to Start April 1
The latest update, posted February 8, reflects a recent ICAO Air Navigation Commission (ANC) recommendation that lithium-ion batteries prepared under Packing Instruction 965 (UN 3480) be banned from carriage as cargo on passenger aircraft.
In addition to discussing the ban, which is expected to take effect on April 1, the update from IATA restates the new rules for shipping lithium batteries by air created in an Addendum to the 57th Edition Dangerous Goods Regulations
It appears that after April 1, all air shipments of lithium-ion batteries prepared in accordance with Packing Instruction 965, Section IA, IB, or II, will require a Cargo Aircraft Only label.
