The 2009-2010 ICAO Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air incorporated a number of revisions to requirements for the safe transport lithium batteries. This document aims to address commonly asked questions on the transport, design type testing, and the State and Operator Variations regarding lithium batteries. It also includes definitions of the different types of batteries.
This document is relevant to operators holding an approval to carry dangerous goods as cargo. The purpose of this FODCOM is to clarify the view of the CAA in respect of guidance published in 2010 by the FAA regarding the carriage of lithium batteries by air as cargo.
All modes of transport have requirements for the carriage of infectious substances - i.e. substances which are known or are reasonably expected to contain pathogens that are defined as micro-organisms (including bacteria, viruses, rickettsiae and fungi), plasmids and other agents such as prions which can cause disease in humans or animals.
This document has been produced by the Department for Transport, the CAA and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, with the assistance of the Dangerous Goods European Aviation Liaison Group and the World Health Organization. It will be of use to consignors/shippers, operators and regulators.
