IATA Issues Updated Lithium Battery Guidance Document for 2019 with PRBA-Endorsed FAQ on New Test Summary Requirement

IATA released its annual Lithium Battery Guidance Document that includes a new FAQ on the lithium battery Test Summary.  The FAQ was originally prepared by PRBA, RECHARGE and MDBTC and filed with the UN Sub-Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods and ICAO Dangerous Goods Panel.  The wide dissemination of the FAQ will help to ensure a consistent interpretation of the Test Summary requirements that take effect internationally on January 1, 2020.

For more information on the Test Summary requirements, contact PRBA Executive Director George Kerchner at gkerchner@wileyrein.com.
