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.
