All About Lithium Battery Transportation - Why It Is Such A Big Deal, And Why It Is Such A Pain

Starting with the basics of Lithium Batteries, from their chemistries and their hazards, to the permutations of how to offer and ship them by different modes, to the testing regime they must pass, to the new summary document, and on to continuing developments in research, this presentation will cover just about everything that makes Lithium Battery transport complicated, and why the current regulatory situation is likely to keep on changing. It will help newbies understand why it is so complicated, and help experienced folk understand the recent changes, and help everyone have some idea of what the future may hold for Lithium Battery transport regulations. The talk will be supplemented by PowerPoint, and will be comprehensive, including some practical tips and suggestions, but in 60 minutes cannot and will not attempt to cover everything in the depth that a training course should.

Functions covered include: Classification, identification, packaging, marking and labeling, documentation, emergency response, training and instruction, and enforcement.
