This SAE Recommended Practice (RP) aids in the identification, handling, and shipping of lithium batteries to and from specified locations. It is the specific intent of this RP to identify, utilize, and reference existing U.S. and international hazardous materials (dangerous goods) transportation regulations, which are the only methodologies to be used to establish transportability. It is also the intent of this RP to provide recommendations to be used by service and shipping personnel for the purpose of determining a possibly damaged/defective battery’s transportability. In support of the service and shipping personnel, these recommendations seek to use standard tools of the trade and avoid laboratory type equipment.
These recommendations are being updated to reconcile regulatory changes that have occurred since the original publication. Additionally, the inspection process for determining a damaged/defective battery has been updated to reflect further guidance and packaging instructions provided by regulators. For completeness of the transportation guidance, regulatory references were added for lithium metal batteries and cells.

* 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.
