Do you know what are the requirements for lithium battery import and export?

Article 17 of the Import and Export Commodity Inspection Law stipulates that an enterprise producing dangerous goods for export must apply to the commodity inspection authorities for an appraisal of the use of packaging containers. Dangerous goods using packaging containers that have not been identified as qualified shall not be exported.
batteries by sea/air transportation request
the battery must be through the UN 38.3 test requirements, and 1.2 m drop packaging test

lithium battery packaging requirements strictly, to ensure the transportation safety and prevent damage of the battery.


here is lithium battery packaging detailed guidelines:

the packaging requirements:

  1. all batteries must be labeled 9 kind of dangerous goods packaging, and labeling the UN number, in order to comply with the regulations of international transportation.

  2. The battery shall be strongly packed to prevent short circuits and to avoid contact with any conductive substance that may cause short circuits.

  3. When the battery is installed in the device for transportation, the device shall be fixed to prevent movement within the package, and the package shall prevent accidental start-up during transportation.

  4. Outer packaging shall be waterproof or be made waterproof by the use of an inner lining (such as a plastic bag), unless the equipment itself is waterproof.

  5. Lithium batteries should be loaded in pallets to avoid strong vibration during handling, and use corner guards to protect the edges of the pallets.

  6. lithium batteries loaded in the container, must be strengthened, to meet the requirements of the importing countries.

lithium battery packaging method:

  1. lithium battery should be individually packaged in a completely closed the inner packing, such as blister packaging or cardboard, in order to ensure that each cell can be protected.

  2. Packaging shall cover and protect the lithium battery, prevent short circuits, and prevent the packaging from coming into contact with any conductive substance.

  3. Packaging must be reliable and meet the test requirements of the UN Test Manual and Conditions, Part III, Paragraph 38.3.

  4. Ensure that the lithium battery is fully covered and marked "; Built into device "; Except for batteries.

  5. Put the goods in strong packing cases.

  6. Provide correct labels and documentation, including battery specifications and safety information.

Outer packing form:  

lithium ion battery can be used in a variety of forms such as barrels, boxes, cans, common is cardboard, plywood boxes, wooden boxes, etc. In practice, lithium-ion batteries are usually packed in cartons and stacked on pallets to facilitate forklift operation and container loading and unloading.

Special requirements:

  1. lithium-ion batteries need to meet the international maritime dangerous goods transport rules of many special provisions and packing guideline.

  2. Battery movement or change of position in the container may cause damage, so necessary ventilation and measures to prevent movement are required.

  3. Lithium-ion batteries with a total weight of more than 12KG should have a hard external container, placed on the tray, and the electrodes should not be load-bearing.

  4. Lithium-ion batteries produced after December 31, 2011 are required to be externally marked with watt-hour ratios, etc.

marking requirements:

  1. In addition to the official shipping name or United Nations number of the contents of the packaging containing lithium batteries and battery packs to be labeled or marked, there are two types of marking: Category 9 Miscellaneous dangerous substances and articles marking and lithium battery marking.

  2. markings must be visible, clear, and able to withstand open exposure without significantly reducing effectiveness.

  3. If air transport is required, a cargo aircraft only label must be affixed, and the label must be affixed next to the hazard label.

Following these packaging guidelines and regulations can ensure the safety of lithium batteries during transportation and reduce any potential risks.
