General definition of dangerous goods

Certain substances or objects are referred to as "dangerous goods" because their properties during transport mean that they pose a danger to life or health for humans and animals or a risk of damage to property or the environment.

Extensive interstate agreements in combination with Austrian legislation guarantee the safe handling of these transports.
Among other things, they regulate the classification, packaging, labelling and documentation of dangerous goods.

In addition, they contain the valid regulations for training the responsible personnel in the correct behavior as well as the legal requirements regarding vehicle construction and equipment.

Companies that dispatch, transport, fill, pack and load or unload dangerous goods in accordance with the regulations of ADR, RID, IMDG, IATA-ICAO or ADN (with the exception of unloading at the final destination) must appoint one or more qualified persons as safety advisors for the transport of dangerous goods (dangerous goods safety advisors) with their consent.

 

Shipping of dangerous goods


Transport of batteries and cells

In hazardous goods law, a distinction is made between primary or secondary batteries (= battery packs) and primary or secondary cells.

Batteries (battery packs): primary or secondary

Batteries" are two or more cells that are electrically connected to each other.
They are equipped with devices necessary for their use
(e.g. battery terminals, battery housing, marking and protection devices etc.).

•    primary: not rechargeable (UN3090 / UN3091)

•    secondary: rechargeable (UN3480 / UN3481)
 

Cells (single cells)

A single-cell battery is considered to be a "cell" and shall be tested accordingly in accordance with the test requirements for a cell and for the purposes of these Regulations and in accordance with the requirements of subsection 38.3 of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria.

•    primary: not rechargeable (UN3090 / UN3091)

•    secondary: rechargeable (UN3480 / UN3481)

 

Note:

Nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries (UN3496) are dangerous goods only in sea freight according to the current status.
Important special regulations (SV963 IMDG / A199 - DGR IATA-ICAO) - see also our guide for transport of UN3496.



Important additional information about lithium-ion batteries UN3480:

As of April 1, 2016 secondary Li-ion batteries / cells may only be offered for transport by air freight with a state of charge (SoC) of 30% of the design capacity and may only be transported on cargo aircraft, therefore all air cargo must be additionally labelled with the "CAO" (Cargo Aircraft only) sticker!

If you are looking for a suitable processing machine on 30% SoC, please contact us.
You can find a suitable flyer for the 2-channel battery test machine in the download area.

Quality Control

Our company is particularly distinguished by our high self-imposed standard of quality and sustainability. Already in the development process, not only quality features but also corresponding environmental considerations are taken into account in order to save resources as much as possible during production.

This is illustrated by our life cycle:


During the production process, each cell is individually checked both visually and technically before it is further processed.


Einer nach dem anderen

Even before delivery, each battery is checked and recorded individually by us.
Through this double quality control we ensure the quality of our products for our customers.
All batteries have an individual serial number to ensure traceability.
In addition, we offer our customers special readout options, by means of which the health status of the respective battery can be read out.


Individual challenges

Our particular strength lies in dealing with individual requirements.
Positive as well as negative feedback is immediately analysed and taken into account in our quality management system for the continuous improvement of the company. In addition, we naturally endeavour to comply with all specified legal and self-imposed obligations.
