The need to promote in a wide range of battery users the knowledge of the related transport regulations inspired us in the realization of these eBooks and the TransBat website, where illustrate in effective way the relevant obligation for shipper of batteries, and equipments, appliances and machinery containing them.
When intended for transport, several batteries technologies are regulated as Dangerous Goods by the United Nations Transport Organisation and other national transport authorities (read more). 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.
The two manuals cover respectively "Lithium ion and Lithium metal batteries", and "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 transport regulation as well as the packaging and labelling requirements by the shipper of batteries (read more).
The objective of EUROBAT and RECHARGE is to offer access to the UN Transport Regulation to the largest number of interested parties in order to make them aware of their duties and responsibilities when shipping batteries according the UN regulation.
