Resources: New Lithium Battery Test Report: Requirements effective January 1, 2022

New recommendations go into effect as part of the UN model regulations and their manual of testing criteria that will require specific information on a lithium battery test report. This report format is intended for enforcement agencies who need to access a standard set of information and data when reviewing compliance for lithium batteries and the UN manual of tests and criteria. The new report criteria include all of the essential elements that an agency would need to ensure that batteries themselves are in compliance with the regulations. There is no specific format mandated, but the elements of information must be present and must be presented to the authorities in a timely manner when requested
