In the IATA News Brief on 13. March 2018 the following statement was published:
Improving Enforcement of Safety Regulations for Lithium Batteries
Safety is the industry’s main priority. Global standards and regulations are in place to ensure the safe transport of dangerous goods including lithium batteries. However, mis-declared or non-compliant dangerous good shipments, especially involving lithium battery consignments, continue.

"We see too many examples of abuse including mislabeling of lithium batteries. Governments must step up enforcement of dangerous goods regulations and take a tougher stance against rogue shippers. This includes using their power to impose significant fines and custodial sentences on those violating the regulations," said Glen Hughes, IATA´s global head of cargo.

As Lithium-Battery-Service our aim is to advise customers to ship lithium cells and lithium batteries in a regulation compliant way. And we do strongly support Glen Hughes statement on the need for significant fines and custodial sentences on those violating the regulations. It´s about time something is happening here.
