Lithium Battery by Air

 

 —  NEW Dangerous Goods Best Practice 015 –
     “Best Practice for Consigning Lithium Cells / Batteries by Airlines in Hong Kong” 

 BP015 is jointly issued by the Dangerous Goods Working Group under the Carrier Liaison Group (CLG-DGWG) and HAFFA for industry reference only.

—  You are strongly requested to observe the requirements of individual carrier and forwarders for air-cargo carriage.

   

BP015 (With effect from 01 Jan 2018) ISSUED (18 Jan 2018)

 In response to the latest changes in lithium batteries under the 59th Edition IATA DGR (2018) (with effect from 01 Jan 2018), the CLG-DGWG and HAFFA have finished the BP reviewing process. Please note the number of the best practice is changed from "BP014" to "BP015" to avoid confusion in the market. That means, “Lithium Batteries Best Practice BP015” will replace “Lithium Batteries Best Practice BP014” with effect from 01 Jan 2018.
