Safety of primary and secondary lithium cells and batteries during transport Abstract IEC is available as IEC RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition. IEC specifies test methods and requirements for primary and secondary rechargeable lithium cells and batteries to ensure their safety during transport other than for recycling or disposal. Requirements specified in this document do not apply in those cases where special provisions given in the relevant regulations, listed in 7. NOTE Different standards may apply for lithium-ion traction battery systems used for electrically propelled road vehicles.

Preview Abstract IEC specifies requirements and tests for the safe operation of secondary lithium cells and batteries used in industrial applications including stationary applications. When there exists an IEC standard specifying test conditions and requirements for cells used in special applications and which is in conflict with this document, the former takes precedence e.
The following are some examples of applications that utilize cells and batteries under the scope of this document. Since this document covers batteries for various industrial applications, it includes those requirements, which are common and minimum to the various applications.
Electrical safety is included only as a part of the risk analysis of Clause 8. In regard to details for addressing electrical safety, the end use application standard requirements have to be considered. This document applies to cells and batteries. If the battery is divided into smaller units, the smaller unit can be tested as the representative of the battery. The manufacturer clearly declares the tested unit. The manufacturer may add functions, which are present in the final battery to the tested unit.
Develop, test and integrate batteries according to the standards
T he obj ect of IEC is to promote int ernational co-operation o n all questions concerning st andardizat ion in t he electrical and electronic f ields. T heir preparat ion is entrust ed to technical committees ; any IEC Nat ional Comm itt ee interest ed in the subj ect dealt w ith may part icipate in t his preparatory work. Int ernational, governmental and non- government al organizations lia ising w it h the IEC also participat e in t his preparation. IEC collaborates c losely w it h t he Inte rnat ional O rganiz at ion f or Standardiz atio n ISO in accordance w it h condit ions determined by agreement between t he two o rganizations. W hile all reasonable eff orts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC Publicat ions is accurate , IEC cannot be held res ponsible for the way in w hic h t hey are used or for any misinterpret at ion by any end user. A ny d ivergence between any IEC Publicat ion and t he corres ponding national or regional publicat ion shall be c learly indicat ed in the latter. Independent certif ication bodies prov ide confo rm ity assessment serv ices and, in some areas , access to IEC marks of conf orm ity.
