Un amendment UN 38.3
Test certificate for lithium batteries becomes mandatory
January 1, 2020 was an important date for anyone who ships lithium cells or batteries. From that date, all suppliers must be able to provide a test summary proving that the shipping products have passed the UN 38.3 test for the transport of lithium batteries. This Regulation applies to all modes of transport and applies to cells and batteries shipped solely with equipment and/or in the final product.
Dangerous goods - lithium cells/batteries
Lithium cells and batteries have always been classified as dangerous goods. The safety requirements, including the UN 38.3 transport test, are correspondingly high. In eight individual tests, the behavior of the cell or battery is tested at extreme temperatures, external short circuits and overcharging. Traffic-specific factors such as impact reactions, vibrations, height changes and crushing are also being investigated.

Large battery systems from Baden for public transprot
Something is happening in Switzerland. In addition to the well-known smaller battery packs for laptops, tablets, mobile phones and electrical appliances, etc., which mostly have to be imported from Asia, our country is now increasingly entering the production of larger battery systems. Reason: Booming electromobility demands ever better and more efficient supply systems. Those who can supply batteries and large batteries will have good cards in the future business with green traffic. The Swiss industrial group ABB does not want to leave the business to the Asians and invests in the production of energy storage systems at home.
