  US Department of Transportation Lithium Battery Final Rule

As information, click here to view the pre-publication version of the lithium battery final rule, issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). We expect that the official version will be published within the next 5-10 days in the Federal Register. 

It is worthwhile to note that the DOT has harmonized most of the lithium battery provisions in the U.S. hazardous materials regulations with international standards. As a member of the coalition led by the Rechargeable Battery Association (PRBA), TIACA applauds this harmonization of the U.S. regulations. The coalition has advocated this position ever since the lithium battery proposed rule was published in January of 2010.
