PRBA Issues Report on Meeting of the ICAO Dangerous Goods Panel and Possible Impacts on the Air Transport of Lithium Batteries

PRBA recently issued its report on the meeting of the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Dangerous Goods Panel (DGP) Working Group, which met virtually to address issues associated with the transport of dangerous good by air, including several proposals on lithium batteries. In addition to the lithium battery proposals, PRBA’s report summarizes the DGP Working Group’s discussions on SAE’s work on the AS6413 lithium battery packaging standard, the European Aviation Safety Agency’s (EASA) testing program on lithium batteries, and ICAO’s plans for intersessional meetings on Energy Storage Devices.
