Air Carriers Already Rejecting Lithium-ion Battery Shipments?
The recently posted Addendum II to the 57th Ed. IATA DGR included the new restrictions that start April 1—including the prohibition of stand-alone lithium-ion batteries (UN 3480) from passenger aircraft—and some updated state and operator variations. However, the latest Addendum may not have included all the revised operator variations or “temporary embargoes” on items like lithium batteries.
Given the seemingly fluid nature of these lithium battery rules, if you are shipping lithium-ion batteries and have concerns about whether or not your shipment will be accepted, be sure to contact your air carrier and get clear instructions on what is and is not permitted.

Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

Lion provided an excellent introduction to environmental regulations, making the transition to a new career as an EHS specialist less daunting of a task. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable!
I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.

Lion Technology workshops are amazing!! You always learn so much, and the instructors are fantastic.
The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.

The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
I can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
Director of Regulatory Affairs
I really enjoy your workshops. Thank you for such a great program and all the help Lion has provided me over the years!
