Important: Temp Controlled Shipments
New Regulations for Temperature Monitoring Devices
The Lithium battery labelling/marking DG regulations changed as of Jan. 1, 2017. IATA has issued a new label/marking to be used with shipments containing Lithium batteries.
Many commonly used temperature monitoring devices for different temperature ranges are covered by the new regulations and may require specific labeling and declarations on the airway bill. Please contact the device manufacturer for more information. Additionally some re-usable packaging solutions with integrated temperature recording devices also use lithium batteries that because of their size or in combination with additional loggers may require declaration.
For more information about the new regulations please contact Unitrans.
