SHIPPING LITHIUM BATTERIES

 A wide variety of electronic goods powered by Lithium Batteries are affected by the new regulations, regardless of whether they are rechargeable (Lithium Ion) or non-rechargeable (Lithium Metal). The regulations apply when:
  • Lithium Batteries are packed and shipped as individual items
  • Lithium Batteries are packed separately but shipped with equipment in the same box. Example: A cell phone with a replaceable Lithium Battery
  • Lithium Batteries are contained or installed in equipment and therefore shipped in the same box. Example: A computer tablet with an integrated Lithium Battery within the device that cannot be removed or replaced by the user.
  • Due to increasing safety concerns raised by the aviation industry, the IATA regulations governing the shipping of Lithium Batteries have been tightened and airlines consequently have to enforce these regulations more rigorously.
  • Please note that the safe transportation of such contents by air and the full compliance to IATA regulations is the legal responsibility of the Shipper. In view of this fact, IATA has produced a guide to help Shippers understand and comply with the regulations.

    When either importing or exporting lithium batteries, no shipment can leave the dock without the articles being packaged, marked, and labeled in accordance with these new Transport Canada Regulations. Further, all shipments performed by Canadian or U.S. flagged air carriers, no matter the origin or destination of the flight, will be required to comply with the battery packaging requirements.

    Since recent changes in law, Lithium Ion and Lithium Metal Batteries have been classified as dangerous goods and can only be freighted to destinations following compliance with strict guidelines imposed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA)Consequently, most courier companies will not accept packages containing lithium batteries from consumers (particularly via air).

    Dangerous Goods Packing Services  has the packaging and freight expertise to meet all the required regulations, offering consumers the ut most in convenience and peace of mind.
