Upcoming Lithium Battery Rule Changes for 2017
There are more changes coming in 2017 and it is going to be VERY challenging for the average human to absorb and understand all the intricacies of these new rules when combined with all the existing rules.
To assist our students in navigating these myriad changes, TDG has developed The Lithium Battery Wizard ℠. The Lithium Battery Wizard ℠ is an online subscription service that sells for $95 a year per user. The Wizard will completely guide anyone (shipper, forwarder and carrier) through the entire process of lithium battery marking, labeling and documentation with 6 clicks of the mouse, or less. It doesn’t take the place of training but is a good tool and supplement for someone who’s already been trained.

Purchase the Wizard.
It's a bit overwhelming so, what's a shipper to do? Take a deep breath, determine what types of batteries you have (i.e. primary or rechargeable) and give us a call at 1-800-949-4834 and we'll help you sort it all out.
We can provide you with a customized webinar, customized onsite training or online (web based) self-guided training, but the most important part is to just focus on the scenarios that are relevant to you and your operations. You don't need to understand each and every permutation of the lithium battery rules... just the parts that apply to your products and by what modes you are shipping. The Lithium Battery Wizard ℠ will allow you to focus on your batteries specifically.
We can also help you if you are currently facing a HazMat (dangerous goods) penalty or fine from the authorities. Again, the first thing you should do is be polite to the FAA, tell them you are committed to a thorough response to their questions, but you need a little time to gather information to do this correctly.
And call us. 1-800-949-4834. Or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
