Since the issue of the Dangerous Goods Advisory Circular DGAC
1/2016, the International Civil Aviation Organization has promulgated
further restrictions on the transport of lithium ion batteries (including
lithium ion polymer batteries), UN 3480, on 23 February 2016. The new
restrictions aim to forbid the transport of lithium ion batteries as cargo on
passenger aircraft.
The restrictions have been approved by the
International Civil Aviation Organization as an amendment to the
2015-2016 Edition of the Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of
Dangerous Goods by Air and will become effective from 1 April 2016
together with those promulgated in DGAC 1/2016. The new restrictions
are highlighted as follows:
(i)

Lithium ion batteries (including lithium ion polymer batteries),
UN 3480, will be prohibited from transport as cargo on passenger
aircraft;

(ii) The cargo aircraft only label must be affixed to each package or
overpack containing lithium ion batteries (including lithium ion
polymer batteries), UN 3480 which is prepared according to the
requirements under Packing Instructions PI965 in addition to the
labels required under the respective Section of the PI965. For
packages packed in accordance with Section II, the cargo aircraft
only label must be located on the same surface of the package
near the lithium battery handling label if the package dimensions
are adequate;
