Though widely used, most people are not aware that lithium batteries are dangerous goods that can pose a safety risk if not prepared in accordance with the transport regulations. To help with compliance, IATA has developed guidance for shippers, freight forwarders, ground handlers, airlines and passengers. As a result, IATAs Lithium Battery Shipping Regulations covers all aspects of the shipping process from packaging requirements, labelling, marking and what to do if something goes wrong en route.
