LITHIUM BATTERIES GUIDANCE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE IATA DANGEROUS GOODS REGULATIONS 57TH EDITION 2016 DHL Express Global Restricted Commodities Group Next January 2016 2016 Lithium Batteries Regulations Defective / Damaged Batteries: DHL will NOT accept any shipments with lithium batteries (ion or metal) that are confirmed or suspected to be defective* and/or damaged (regardless of how the condition is and in whichever quantities). DHL will NOT accept any batteries that have been recalled by the battery supplier/manufacturer nor any waste batteries meant for recycling or disposal purposes (regardless of condition). *A defective battery may not exhibit any damage at all! Any equipment packed with or containing lithium batteries (in particular equipment returned for repair purposes as part of reverse logistics/service parts program) exhibiting above mentioned condition, must have the batteries removed from the equipment in order to be accepted for carriage with DHL. Important Disclaimer: Please note that the information contained in this Guide is purely illustrative and does not replace the study of the Dangerous Goods Regulations to perform any tasks related to the preparation of shipments containing Lithium Batteries. DHL will not be held responsible for any inaccuracy, error or omission, regardless of cause. Next Previous January 2016 2016 Lithium Batteries Regulations: Transport Document Lithium battery shipments pertaining to Section IB of PI965 / PI968, and all Section II shipments requiring a lithium battery handling label must be accompanied by a Transport Document. Please be aware that for shipments to, within or from Asia additional relevant supporting documents may need to be presented.
