When intended for transport, several batteries technologies are regulated as Dangerous Goods by the United Nations Transport Organisation and other national transport authorities. This regulation is being permanently adapted to take into consideration the evolution of the technologies.
Batteries benefit of a growing market and multiple new usages and applications are constantly proposed to the end users.
Battery technology innovation and development helps an increasing number of technicians and engineers to design new equipment powered by autonomous sources of energy such as batteries
The necessity for an increasing number of economic actors to respect the UN Dangerous Goods Regulation requires modern communication tools to inform the shippers of batteries about their duties and responsibilities when offering them for transport.
The aim of this manual is to offer a simple and visual means to access the UN Regulation via a modern multimedia communication tool. Following a first manual covering the Lithium ion and Lithium metal batteries, this second manual is covering the Lead-acid, Nickel Cadmium, Nickel Metal Hydride and Sodium-Nickel chloride batteries. The regulation is presented in a summarized format covering ground, air and maritime transportation modes. ln a page opposite the various regulations, the packaging and labelling instructions are illustrated to facilitate the implementation of the trans port regulation as well as the packaging and labelling requirements by the shipper of batteries.

The complexity of the International Dangerous Goods Transport Regulation for Batteries requires an increasing attention from those who are shipping these batteries.
Non-Lithium batteries are classified as “Class 4.3” and “Class 8 ” Dangerous Goods in accordance with United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods Model Regulations
The regulations may frequently change anyway depending on the transport model utilized.
This Manual is aimed at delivering basic information to those who are not yet familiar with these International Dangerous Goods Transport Regulations.
The manual is divided into two parts.
The Manual is organised according to the UN Number of non-lithium batteries, considering "new" and "waste" batteries, the “quantities” of batteries that are shipped, and the separate shipping of electrolyte.
This manual is only a guide to assist the reader in preparing non-lithium batteries shipments for transportation by road, sea and air. It doesn’t replace any of the regulations manual that are applicable to the shipment of lithium batteries.
