Inventory: What Are The Necessary Certification For The Export Of Lithium Battery Products? Nov 10, 2017

The new U.S. President Trump signed a freeze order in January 2017 requesting a re-examination of 49 CFR, HM-215N rules, which apply to the air transport of dangerous goods starting January 1, 2017, which includes new lithium Battery Tag and New Lithium Batteries 9 Hazard Labels.

       The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Authority (PHMSA) has withdrawn the final rule to be published in the Federal Register on January 26.

       As a result of the freeze order, lithium batteries shipped to the United States will only comply with and use the old 2016 version of the "Technical Specifications" standard. The new Lithium Batteries will be temporarily unavailable under the UN Classification No. 9 and Lithium Batteries. There are new changes to inform everyone.


       International lithium battery in 2017 must be the focus of the industry's hot spots, non-standard parcel Chonghuo the harder and harder to walk, compliance and stability of the logistics channel is the long-term way.


        So how to be considered compliance, lithium-ion battery exports in the end what certification needs? Xiao Bian finishing some information to facilitate everyone on the lithium battery certification to be a comprehensive understanding!


UN38.3 certification


Suitable range covers almost the whole world, is a safety and performance test, as long as it relates to the shipping of shipping packaging containing lithium batteries, whether it is a small coin cell, the battery installed in the device, or with the device packed battery , All need to UN38.3 test and obtain air transport identification report before passing through the air. Certification cycle from a few days to a month (mainly based on product capacity, pre-trial conditions to be), certification costs ranging from several thousand yuan to more than ten thousand yuan.

    So how to choose the certification body to apply for the certification? In fact, UN38.3 test and UN38.3 test report can be conducted as long as they meet the requirements of laboratory IEC17025, relevant UN38.3 testing professional equipment and strong technical guidance. It is noteworthy that the final aviation Transport identification must be directly authorized by the Civil Aviation Administration of China recognized Dangerous Goods certification body can audit certification, UNDOT (UND38.3) and other certification difference is that the effect of other certification is reflected in the terminal sales market, UNDOT test results Reflected in the transport process.


IEC 62133 certification


IEC 62133 is the world's most important international standard for lithium-ion batteries, IECEE-CB is also an important basis for certification. Currently Japan, South Korea, Thailand, India and other countries have adopted the IEC 62133 countries have developed their own national standards, these standards have become an important basis for market access in these countries.

       The latest version of IEC 62133 was released on February 7, 2017. IEC 62133 is governed by IEC / SC21A and is specifically developed by WG4, with version 1 being released in 2002 and version 2 being released in 2012.


Battery MSDS / SDS Report


Many customers encounter such problems in the transport of products with batteries, freight forwarding companies or shipping companies need to provide the MSDS report, did not do MSDS customers have doubts, MSDS is what? Why go to apply for MSDS? How to apply MSDS? Who to apply for MSDS? These are troubling questions, hope the following content can eliminate your doubts.


MSDS manufacturers by the relevant rules in their own preparation. However, in order to ensure the accurate standardization of the report, the application can be made to specialized agencies.

CE certification



      Suitable for the EU region, divided into safety and performance testing, certification cycle from a few days to a year, certification costs ranging from thousands of yuan to tens of thousands of yuan. CE certification relative UL certification, the probability of adoption (safety) is relatively high, in our opinion, the EU member states more attracted the majority of manufacturers CE certification, after all, the sales price in Europe and North America is relatively much better than the domestic, but Because of the large size of the EU, its standard update rate is also surprising. As a result, many manufacturers have been in a state of confusion and it seems difficult to keep up with the standard updates.

      CE certification is a self-declaration, if the manufacturers themselves have the ability to test, it is entirely possible to put in their own products CE compliance label sales in Europe, but if the EU market was spot checks failed, will be called (very serious Of the fine), so many domestic manufacturers commissioned a third party to test, to a large extent, to avoid the risk of recall.


EU Battery Directive


      In 2003, Europe promulgated the RoHS and WEEE directives one after another, making all countries, especially domestic electrical appliance manufacturers in an uproar. We all went around and understood the two directives. But many people do not know, these two instructions inappropriate "battery", the battery has a battery instruction Battery Directive

      2006/66 / EC, the EU Battery Directive and RoHS are parallel directives for different products, but many battery manufacturers are convinced that "SGS certification" and "RoHS", do not know is a fundamental mistake! SGS is a European certification body only, the RoHS directive is not suitable for batteries, so the EU battery directive is the correct title, we should pay attention to the "EU Battery Directive", rather than other directives, otherwise it will easily lead to many unnecessary trouble. Another if the product has to do the electricity supplier Note, Amazon Germany station now requires the product must have WEEE to shelves.


UL certification



      Suitable for the North American region, mainly for safety testing, the certification cycle is usually about 2 months (lead-acid batteries a little shorter), certification costs are usually tens of thousands of yuan to several hundred thousand yuan range. The reason why the UL certification best-selling is because there is a phenomenon in North America, that is, all UL certified products, if consumers purchase adverse consequences due to product quality (for example, hurt the rights of consumers), consumers can complain to vendors , And sellers can easily get the insurance company's compensation, because the product is UL certified, so, through UL's products in North America is easy to sell a large extent for this reason.


PSE certification



     The suitable range for the Japanese region, mainly safety and performance testing, the current market there are two kinds of standards, one is the reference IEC60950, the other is a reference IEC62133, the former is the standard of general information products, which is the international battery Proprietary standards. The former will be gradually replaced by the latter. The former certification cycle is shorter, two weeks time, the latter certification cycle longer, takes 1-2 months, certification costs corresponding to several thousand yuan to tens of thousands of yuan. The main difference between the price to see what form is applied (diamond or round) PSE, what is the standard.

      Specific electrical and material products that enter the Japanese market must obtain the third-party certification approved by Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and bear the PSE rhombus logo. Non-specific electrical and material-based products are required to declare themselves or apply for third-party certification. Mark PSE round mark. Both lithium batteries can be selected, at present due to the cost of lithium power plant is the choice of circular lithium batteries, unless it is made by foreign guests prismatic lithium batteries.


KC certification


      Applicable to South Korea, the test standard KC62133, in particular need to do is to do the battery KC certification depends on whether the cell has done KC or CB certification, if the cell has done CB or KC, then do the battery KC directly, the cost of 15,000 To 20,000. If the batteries did not do the entire product, the cost of 30,000 -3.5 million.
