IATA DGR edition 63 – 2022 – Lithium Battery Changes


A title

Image Box text

The IATA DGR, 63rd edition (2022), will have the necessary amendments. One of these amendments have to do with Lithium Batteries. For Lithium batteries shipped on their own, the section II classification will disappear:

  • Packing Instructions PI 965 and PI 968 have been revised to remove Section II from these two packing instructions. To provide shippers with time to adapt their logistics processes to ship lithium cells and batteries in accordance with Section IB of Packing Instruction 965 and Packing Instruction 968, as applicable, there is a 3-month transition period until 31 March 2022, during which time shippers may continue to use Section II.

If transporting lithium batteries by air remain a challenge for you, or you would like to pre-order your IATA DGR 63 copy (print, windows, mobile), make sure to give us a call or send us an email.
