Most unmanned aircraft systems (drones) are powered by lithium batteries.
To ensure safety in airspace and during the transport of drones, there are requirements in the transport regulations for each of these lithium batteries.
E.g. they must be manufactured according to the quality management system described in the regulations and they must have passed the UN 38.3 test.

What exactly this QM program has to look like, we have put together for you under this link:


What is tested in this UN Test Series 38.3 can be found here:
High-quality drones have lithium-ion-batteries with more than 100 Wh. For large lithium cells and batteries three more technical requirements need to be fulfilled:

  • Short circuit fuse
  • safety venting device or safety device against violent rupture
  • for cells / series of cells connected in parallel: protection against dangerous reverse currents

Before shipping or transporting a " large" lithium-battery, check with the manufacturer or supplier of the battery to make sure that all criteria are met.
Our Supplier Inquiry Form includes all necessary queries for the logistics process, including the further technical requirements for "large" batteries.
You can download and use it free of charge, provided that our copyright information in the footer is kept in place:


Since 01.01.2020 onwards a UN 38.3 Test Summary needs to be provided by the manufacturer and any subsequent supplier on request. We have included all required details of the UN 38.3 Test Summary in our Supplier Inquiry Form.

For shipping drones and their lithium ion batteries Lithium-Battery-Service offers you all information for preparing the transport in our checklist article. In addition to a checklist for transport preparation, our checklist articles also include all current markings and labels for each transport case and, if necessary, samples of the required transport documents.
