This Standard is issued for the first time.
Safety of primary and secondary lithium cells and batteries
during transport
1 Scope
This Standard specifies test methods and requirements for primary and secondary (rechargeable) lithium cells and batteries to ensure their safety during transport (other than for recycling or disposal). Requirements specified in this Standard do not apply in those cases where special provisions given in the relevant regulations of China (see 7.3), provide exemptions.
2 Normative references
The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies. GB 8897.4 Primary batteries - Part 4: Safety of lithium batteries (GB 8897.4-2002, IEC 60086-4:2000, IDT)
IEC 61960 Secondary cells and batteries containing alkaline or other non-acid electrolyte - Secondary lithium cells and batteries for portable applications 3 Terms and definitions
For the purpose of this document, the following terms and definitions apply. 3.1
aggregate lithium content
Total lithium content or lithium equivalent content of the cells comprising a battery. 3.2
battery
One or more cells electrically connected by permanent means, fitted in a case, with terminals, markings and protective devices, etc., as necessary for use. 3.3
International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and in the Dangerous Goods Regulations published by the International Air Transport Association (IATA)5). 7.3.3 Sea transport
Regulations concerning sea transport of lithium batteries are specified in the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code published by the International Maritime Organization (IMO)6).
7.3.4 Land transport
Regulations concerning road and railroad transport are specified on a national or multilateral basis. Whilst an increasing number of regulators adopt the UN Model Regulations, it is recommended that country-specific transport regulations be consulted before shipping.
7.4 Display and storage
a) Store batteries in well ventilated, dry and cool conditions
High temperature or high humidity may cause deterioration of the battery performance and/or surface corrosion.
b) Do not stack battery cartons on top of each other exceeding a height specified by the manufacturer
If too many battery cartons are stacked, batteries in the lowest cartons may be deformed and electrolyte leakage may occur.
c) Avoid storing or displaying batteries in direct sun or in places where they get exposed to rain
When batteries get wet, their insulation resistance may be impaired and self- discharge and corrosion may occur. Heat may cause deterioration.
d) Store batteries in their original packing
When batteries are unpacked and mixed they may be short-circuited or damaged. 8 Instructions for packaging and handling during transport
