Interpretation: Lithium battery products need to do what certification?

From:Shenzhen STS test services Co., Ltd. Hits:855 Createtime:2017-04-07

      US President Trump, in January 2017, signed a freeze order requiring a reconsideration of the 49CFR, HM-215N rule, which applies to air transport of dangerous goods from 1 January 2017, including new lithium Battery markers and new lithium batteries 9 category of dangerous labels.
      The US Department of Transportation (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Substances Safety Authority (PHMSA) has withdrawn the final rule to be announced in the Federal Register on 26 January.
      The result of the freezing order is that the lithium battery products shipped to the United States can only comply with and use the old 2016 version of the "Technical Rules" standard, the new lithium battery United Nations Class 9 label and lithium battery mark temporarily can not be used, follow-up Have a new change and then inform everyone.
      2017 lithium battery international logistics industry must be concerned about the hot, not standardized packet of goods more and more difficult to go, compliance, and stable logistics channel is the long way to go.

      So what can be considered compliance, lithium battery exports in the end what kind of certification? Xiaobian finishing some of the information to facilitate everyone on the lithium battery certification to be a comprehensive understanding!

UN38.3 certification

Suitable for the scope of the world is almost related to safety and performance testing, as long as it is related to the shipping package containing lithium battery inside, whether it is a small button battery, installed on the battery equipment, or equipment packaged with the battery , It is necessary to carry out UN38.3 test and obtain air transport identification report before passing the air inspection. The certification period varies from a few days to a month (mainly based on product capacity, pre-conditions of the test to be), the certification costs from thousands of yuan to more than ten thousand yuan.
      Recently UNDOT (UND38.3) formal forced, resulting in many companies are also hovering, can not find a suitable third party testing agencies. In fact, as long as the requirements of the laboratory IEC17025, related to UN38.3 testing professional equipment, strong technical guidance to do backing, can be UN38.3 test and issued UN38.3 test report; it is worth noting that: the final aviation The identification of UNDOT (UND38.3) and other certifications is that the effect of other certifications is reflected in the terminal sales market, and the UNDOT test results are valid for the certification of UNDOT (UND38.3) and other certification. Reflected in the transport process.
IEC 62133 certification
      IEC 62133 is the world's most important international standards for lithium-ion batteries, IECEE-CB certification is also an important basis. At present, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, India and other countries have adopted IEC 62133, respectively, to develop their own national standards, these standards have become an important basis for market access in these countries.
      The latest version of IEC 62133 was released on February 7, 2017. IEC 62133 by the IEC / SC21A centralized, specifically by the WG4 responsible for the development of the first edition published in 2002, 2nd edition released in 2012.
Battery MSDS / SDS report
      Many customers encounter such a problem, in the battery with the product transport, freight forwarding companies or shipping companies need to provide MSDS report, MSDS customers do not have doubts, MSDS is what? Why apply for MSDS? How to apply for MSDS? To whom to apply for MSDS? These are troubled problems, hope the following content can eliminate your doubts.
      MSDS can be prepared by the manufacturer in accordance with the relevant rules. But in order to ensure the accuracy of the report can be applied to the professional institutions to prepare.
CE certification
      Suitable for the EU region, divided into safety and performance testing, certification cycle from a few days to a year ranging from certification costs from several thousand yuan to tens of thousands of yuan. CE certification is relatively high, the probability of passing (security) is relatively high, in our view, the EU member states are more attractive to most manufacturers CE certification, after all, Europe and the United States and North America sales price is much better than the domestic, but It is because the EU's huge, so the speed of its standard update is surprising, so many manufacturers have been in a more confused state, it seems difficult to keep up with the standard update.
      CE certification is self-declaration, if the manufacturers themselves have the ability to test, you can in their own products posted on the CE compliance label sales of Europe, but if the EU market was spot checks failed, will be the church (very serious Of the fine), so many domestic manufacturers have commissioned a third party to test, to a large extent to avoid the risk of recall.
EU battery instructions
      In 2003, Europe has introduced RoHS and WEEE directive, so that all countries, especially domestic electrical manufacturers in an uproar, we rush to understand and between the two instructions. But many people do not know that these two instructions are not appropriate "battery", the battery has a special battery instructions Battery Directive
      2006/66 / EC, EU Battery Directive and RoHS are parallel instructions for different products, but many battery manufacturers firmly believe that "SGS certification" and "RoHS", do not know is a fundamental mistake! SGS is a European certification body only, RoHS directive is not suitable for the battery, so the EU battery instructions is the correct title, we should pay attention to the "EU battery directive", rather than other instructions, otherwise it will easily lead to a lot of unnecessary trouble. Another product if there is a need to do electricity, and now the requirements of the German station in Germany have to do WEEE can shelves.
UL certification
      Suitable for the North American region, mainly for the safety test, the certification cycle is usually about 2 months time (lead-acid battery slightly shorter), the certification fee is usually tens of thousands of yuan to several hundred thousand yuan. The reason why UL certification is popular, because there is a phenomenon in North America, that is, all UL certified products, if the consumer after the purchase due to product quality problems and adverse consequences (such as harming consumer rights), consumers can complain to the seller , And the seller is easy to get compensation from the insurance company, the reason is because the product passed the UL certification, so through UL products in North America is very easy to sell a large extent for this reason.
PSE certification
      Suitable for the scope of the Japanese region, mainly safety and performance testing, the current market there are two kinds of standards, one is quoted IEC60950, the other is quoted IEC62133, the former is the general information product standards, which is the battery of the international Proprietary standards. The former will be gradually replaced by the latter. The former certification cycle is shorter, two weeks time, the latter certification cycle is longer, need 1-2 months time, the certification fee also corresponds to a few thousand yuan to tens of thousands of yuan range. The price difference is mainly to see what kind of application (diamond or round) of the PSE, with what kind of standard.
      The "specific electrical and materials" products entering the Japanese market must be certified by a third party approved by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, marking the PSE diamond logo, "non-specific electrical and materials" products must be self-declared or apply for third- Mark the PSE round logo. Lithium batteries can choose between the two, due to the current lithium power plant to consider the cost of choice is a round lithium battery, unless the requirements of foreign guests made of lithium-shaped lithium batteries.
KC certification
      Applicable to South Korea, the test standard KC62133, in particular, need to pay attention to do the battery KC certification depends on the batteries have not done KC or CB certification, if the batteries do CB or KC, then do the battery KC, the cost of 15,000 To 20,000. If the batteries did not do, do the whole product, the cost of 30,000 -3.5 million.
