Lithium ion cells and -batteries and lithium metal cells and -batteries are contained in many devices, such as consumer electronics, home appliances, toys, vehicles and many other rechargeable devices.

Because lithium batteries fall under class 9 dangerous goods, transportation, shipping and packaging are regulated by the Transport Regulations for Dangerous Goods. Thus, there are several things to consider. Especially in air transport, safety is a top priority to prevent fires.

Every lithium ion cell and battery and every lithium metal cell and battery must have been manufactured according to a quality management program and must have passed the UN Test 38.3. Only then is transport permitted.


What this quality management program includes, you can find here:

If a lithium cell or lithium battery is not a prototype or a small series of up to 100 units, it must also have successfully passed the UN Test Series 38.3.

The UN test series 38.3 includes the following:

If you want to make sure that the lithium cell or -battery complies with these two specifications, you can ask the manufacturer or subsequent supplier before purchasing.
From 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.

Our supplier inquiry form helps you to get all necessary information for logistics from the manufacturer or supplier. You can download it free of charge:

For shipping preparation we can offer you a checklist article for every transport case, also for prototypes.
These you can find via FIND A SINGLE CHECKLIST:
