When active, these devices must meet defined standards for electromagnetic radiation to ensure that the operation of the device does not interfere with aircraft systems. The devices must not be capable of emitting disturbing signals (such as buzzing alarms, strobe lights, etc.) during transport Packaging Drums, Jerricans, Boxes; not required approved packaging. The equipment must be packed in strong outer packagings constructed of suitable material of adequate strength and design in relation to the packaging's capacity and its intended use unless the cell is afforded equivalent protection by the equipment in which it is contained. Where multiple pieces of equipment are packed in the same outer packaging, the equipment must be packed and protected against contact with other equipment so as to prevent damage; Weight limit cells/package No limit No limit 5 kg Net 5 kg Net Marking and Labelling of Packages Minimum dimensions: 100 × 100 mm Where the packages are of dimensions such that they can only bear smaller labels the label dimensions may be reduced to 100 mm × 70 mm Marking is not required for packages containing: • button cell installed in equipment (including circuit boards), • ≤ 4 cells installed in equipment, where there are not more than two packages in the consignment.
