Mandatory Now: New Lithium Battery Labels for 2019
Posted: 4/2/19 | Category:  Press Releases, Supplies Shops Product Highlights | By: 

The packaging and shipping of lithium batteries is highly regulated to reduce the risk of accident and injury. If your business ships this type of battery, it’s incredibly important to stay on top of the latest regulations. For example, there are new requirements for shipping lithium battery labels that affect the way many businesses can mail these items. Shipments must meet new labeling requirements due to these new regulations. These new communications were added to all the different sets of regulations (whether D.O.T., IATA, or IMDG) at the start of 2017.  

When this new rule was originally announced, a two-year transition period was provided to start using the new marks and labels. During that two-year period, you could use either the “old” marks and labels or the new updated ones.

As of January 1, 2019, that transition period has ended. As such, you can no longer use the old versions; you must use the newest options.

DL1944 is no longer compliant for air transportation as of December 31, 2018.

DL1938, DL1950, DL1951, DL1952 and DL1953 labels have replaced the DL1944 label for lithium batteries. The new labels allow you to indicate the UN number you are shipping and it includes a spot for your phone number. You must provide this information either by writing it in by hand or getting custom pre-printed labels with your contact details.

The new labels are required as of January 1, 2019.
