Dangerous Goods and Lithium Battery Regulations
Parcelive complies with the UN standards for the transport of Dangerous Goods as a result of Parcelive being powered by a Lithium battery, the specific standard being:
UN ST/SG/AC.10/11/Rev.5 Amend. 1 “Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods Manual of Tests and Criteria” Fifth revised edition – Part 3, Section 38.3
Customers need to be aware of the implications of shipping parcels with a Parcelive tracker in the packages, the salient points being as follows:
-The package(s) into which Parcelive has been placed has no other lithium battery power equipment or batteries within the package or consignment, and
-There are no more than two packages in the consignment into which Parcelive trackers have been placed.
In the case where a consignment does not include any Lithium battery powered equipment or battery packs apart from the ones contained in the Parcelive ones, if more than two Parcelive devices are placed in the packages in the consignment, then all of the packages containing Parcelive devices must have the lithium battery mark applied to them.
In such circumstances, the lithium battery mark of minimum size 120mm (W) x 110mm (H) would include the UN number UN 3481 to indicate lithium batteries installed in the Parcelive devices.
