Transport and Packaging Instructions

This manual is designed to provide a quick and easy-to-understand guide to readers who are not familiar with the rules applicable to prepare a shipment of lithium cells, batteries or equipment containing these batteries, either as new or waste, by road, maritime and air transport modes.

The manual is divided into two parts:

  • Part 1 summarizes the main regulation requirements for road, sea and air transport.
  • Part 2 contains 40 Summary Sheets where the different transport mode requirements are summarized in one page, with the appropriate packaging shipping documents, marks, and labels. 

An illustration of the packaging instructions is offered to the reader and presented with illustrative examples. 

Our eBooks are regularly updated with the changes of the regulation.
