Recommended Practices (RP) for Shipping Transport and Handling of Automotive-Type Battery System - Lithium Ion
Published February 6, 2012 by SAE International in United States
This RP aids in the identification, handling, and shipping of new and used un-installed lithium ion battery systems to and from specified locations. The generic term “battery system” shall be used to identify automotive-type and sized “traction” batteries when used as intended by the vehicle and battery system original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for ground vehicles. It is the specific intent of this RP to identify, utilize and reference existing US and International hazardous materials (dangerous goods) transportation regulations, which are the only methodologies to be used to establish transportability of new battery systems. It is also the intent of this RP to provide recommendations regarding diagnostic testing to be used by service and shipping personnel for the purpose of determining a used battery system’s transportability. In support of the service and shipping personnel, the diagnostics process seeks to use standard tools of the trade and avoid laboratory type equipment.
The transport of current and advanced technology battery systems requires knowledge of current transportation regulations as well as battery systems capabilities in assisting with self diagnostics to help ensure battery system transportability. This RP will provide assistance in identifying relevant regulations and assist in recommending self diagnostic battery system capabilities. This RP is not a substitute for proper training, which is required by regulation, and or study of national and international regulations.

* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
