UN No., Proper Shipping Name UN 3480, LITHIUM ION BATTERIES Class 9 Small excepted Packing Group Not assigned Hazard Label Not required Prerequisite • Cells must meet the General Requirements of § 1.3 in particular the test requirements Transport mode ADR IMDG IATA Passenger aircraft Cargo Packing Instructions SP 188 SP 188 PI 965 section II Forbidden State of Charge (SoC) ≤ 30 % of their rated design capacity Exemption conditions Cells must be protected so as to prevent short circuits, including protection against contact with conductive materials within the same packaging that could lead to a short circuit. Cells must be packed in inner packagings that completely enclose the cell. The inner packagings must be packed in strong outer packagings Packaging Drums, Jerricans, Boxes; not required approved packaging. Each package must be capable of withstanding a 1.2 m drop test in any orientation without damage to cells contained therein, without shifting of the contents so as to allow cell to cell contact and without release of contents • Packages and overpacks containing lithium cells must be offered to the operator separately from the goods in the consolidation that are not subject to IATA Regulations • Packages and overpacks in consolidations must not be loaded into a unit load device before being offered to the operator. • Not more than 1 package in any single consignment. • Restriction: must not be packed in the same outer packaging with other dangerous goods.
