New IATA lithium battery guidance. Includes state of charge regulation issued 7 January 2016
Discussion of additional potential IATA/ ICAO changes for lithium batteries in 2016
The Pipeline Hazardous Materials Administration (PHMSA) has issued an extension to the compulsory time frame for compliance for NON-AIR shipments from February 6, 2015 until August 7, 2015. This docket covering Lithium Battery shipping regulations essentially harmonizes the DOT regulations with the international air and ocean regulations - with some exceptions. This final rule extension comes as the result of several industry groups realizing the major change in the ground shipping rules, that now requires marking and documentation of even single (excepted battery) shipment. They need more time to adapt the changes to their operational and training requirements. For more details, please see the above link or contact our customer support team via email at: email@example.com.

Material Safety Data Sheet Information (now Safety Data Sheets (SDSs))
The Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) (29 CFR 1910.1200(g)), revised in 2012, requires that the chemical manufacturer, distributor, or importer provide Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) (formerly MSDSs or Material Safety Data Sheets) for each hazardous chemical to downstream users to communicate information on these hazards. The information contained in the SDS is largely the same as the MSDS, except now the SDSs are required to be presented in a consistent user-friendly, 16-section format.
