Mandatory Now: New Lithium Battery Labels for 2019
If you are unaware, there are new requirements for shipping lithium battery labels. Shipments must meet new labeling requirements due to new regulations. These new communications were added to all the different sets of regulations (whether DOT, IATA, or IMDG) at the start of 2017.
As part of that rule making, they gave a two-year transition period 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 & DL1953 have replaced DL1944. The new labels allow you to indicate the UN number you are shipping and it allows a spot for your phone number.
The new labels are required as of January 1, 2019.
