CEIV Lithium Battery

CEIV Lithium Battery (CEIV LiBa) is a certification program designed to enable shippers and Freight forwarders of lithium battery products to meet their safety obligation by complying with the applicable Transport regulations. Lithium batteries have become the preferred energy source to power a wide variety of consumer goods, ranging from mobile phones to children's toys to cars and e-bikes. Though widely used, most people are not aware that lithium batteries are Dangerous Goods that can pose a safety risk if not prepared in accordance with Transport regulations. The aviation industry has voiced concerns over the lack of awareness and the increasing number of incidents of intentionally mis-declared and non-compliant lithium batteries in cargo shipments, and the needs to address the safety risks to ensure that the security of the supply chain is not compromised. Driven by the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) and the Lithium Battery Shipping Regulations (LBSR), the CEIV LiBa establishes baseline standards to improve the level of competency and quality management in the handling and carriage of lithium batteries throughout the supply chain. Organizations that undergo training, assessment and validation requirements are granted a certificate issued by IATA and are listed on the IATA ONE Source registry upon successful completion and compliance with the program standards.
