    UN38.3 In order to ensure the lithium battery air transport safety, the international air transport association make rules in 《the dangerous goods regulations》 that the precondition of transportation for the Lithium battery air transport must conform to the requirements of the UN38.3 lithium-ion batteries testing.Our China's civil aviation administration is also very strict with the lithium battery air monitoring measures,demands clearly that every airline company and the airport cargo receiving department must examine every kind of lithium battery UN38.3 test report strictly,without qualified test report,the batteries can’t be shipped by air freight. AGC testing company can do testing for different kinds of batteries and provide one-stop integrated service.  UN38.3 test standard has been made according to the United Nations on the transport of dangerous goods proposal - test and standard manual "revision 1 & 2,including 8 test items: highly simulation, temperature test, vibration, mechanical shock, external short circuit, extrusion/impact, overcharge, discharge forcibly. For shipping lithium-ion batteries,it not only needs to pass UN38.3 test, but also needs to pass 1.2m drop testing according to lithium batteries single transportation and lithium batteries with equipment transport package,the package must conform to the requirements of the laws and regulations.  The package rules about Lithium ion battery and lithium metal battery are as follows: CB In June of 2009,IECEE CB Certification Management Committee made the IEC62133 standard ACAG/1398/DSH which Lithium batteries need to follow and formulate the corresponding import schedule, since May 1st,2012,all the products such as power tools, medical equipment, household appliances, lighting lamps and lanterns with battery must meet the IEC 62133 requirements. At the same time,EN60950-1:2006/A2:2013 has been carried out formally since July 2nd,2013.Whereby 4.3.8 stipulate that all the acidic portable secondary battery must meet the requirements of  IEC62133,which means from July 2nd,2014,the batteries of all the mobile phones, BT earphones, BT speakers etc. have to do IEC62133 test when apply for CE certification. Besides, the International Electrical Commission published the safety standard IEC 62133:2012 on new version of the portable sealed secondary battery core and battery fluid cell (containing alkaline and acidic solution) ,EN 32133:2013 was carried out since Oct.10th,2013,the battery manufacturer should make the product conform to the new standard when do the design. CB certification use IEC62133:2012 standard to do the test,the test items are as follows: Type Test  Item IEC62133-2012 Nickel batteries) Low range continuous charging, vibration, temperature cycle, monomer battery incorrect installation,external short circuit, free fall, mechanical shock, heat misuse, extrusion, depression, charging forced discharge Nickel batteries or battery pack vibration,high temperature molding shell stress,temperature cycle, external short circuit, free fall, mechanical impact, over charging Lithium battery or the battery pack molding shell stress,external short circuit, free fall,over charging lithium core continuous charging, external short circuit, free fall, hot misuse,squeezing, forced discharge, Transport, mandatory internal short circuit AGC testing company owns the 3ird party lab. with interdependent certifications, professional technique team and maintains very good, mutual cooperation with many certification institutions, can provide one-stop testing and certification services to battery manufacturers, distributions and exporters to get CB certificate fast and conveniently. BIS The Bureau of India Standards,which is short for BIS is India's standardization and certification authority.It was formally established in 1987.The Bureau of India Standards is the only official certification organization that connects with custom  in India at present.Without BIS certification,the products in the BIS compulsive list can’t enter Indian custom. The Indian DEITY gave formal announcement and expanded the law about Electronics and information technology products (mandatory registration requirements),the new product range include 15 kinds of new products such as adapter,uninterrupted power supply, invertor, LED lamps,secondary battery, mobile power supply, mobile phone etc. Statement for portable devices used in alkaline or acid battery liquid secondary battery/battery pack will be effective after nine months from the date of release, that is ,from  August 7, 2015. The new test standard IS 16046:2012 will be carried out formally since August 7th,2015,which is the same as IEC62133:2012 edition.The test items are as follows: To lithium system: continuous charging, external short circuit, free fall, thermal abuse, squeezing, forced discharge,      transportation, mandatory internal short circuit, molding shell stress and over-charge To nickel system: continuous charging, vibration, temperature cycle, monomer battery incorrect installation, external short circuit, free fall, mechanical shock, thermal abuse, extrusion, depression, over-charging, forced discharge, high temperature molding shell stress Based on India's national conditions, BIS certification has its own unique characteristics: requires a lot of documentation, certification procedures are very complicated, has very strong sense of hierarchy,fussy procedures,need very strict factory audit or spot check.To inexperienced service organization,one BIS certification needs at least 1 year.While AGC testing company can provide you with BIS certification with shorten lead time and make your products clear custom smoothly. UL (1) Introduction of UL Certification UL is short for (Underwriter Laboratories Inc.),an Independent,unprofitable professional organization,is the most authoritative, also a big non-government institution which works on safety test and authorization.The UL certification covers building materials, electrical appliances, electrical engineering, materials, Marine equipment, oil and gas equipment, dangerous storage equipment, product with flame retardant requirement etc. At present,there are 66 lab.,testing and certification organizations in 104 countries in the global,the branches and service networks are all over the world. Its branch company in China is UL Meihua Certification Co.,Ltd., UL test and certification for battery can be completed in China.  (2) Battery UL certification UL certification is required for battery before enter the American market.Though UL is voluntary,but the American custom usually release the products with UL logo easily,while products without UL logo need complicated inspection procedures.Besides,if the products without UL mark cause accidents,the CPSC will judge it according to the UL standard.So,in the USA,to avoid trouble,a lot of re-tailors refuse to sell products without UL logo. Product scope: Lithium batteries (group), backup battery (group), residential and commercial battery (group) Test standard and items: Standard Test item UL1642 Lithium batteries (group) standards   Electrical test Short circuit at room temperature Short circuit under 55℃  abnormal charging forced discharge  Mechanical test vibration heavy body impact test extrusion impact  Environment test heating temperature cycling altitude simulation    ignition test UL 2054 Residential and commercial cell (group) Electrical test Short circuit at room temperature Short circuit under 55℃ abnormal charging over-charging forced discharge output limit External test 250N external force test dropping Mould pressure test  ignition test    label PSE Before April 1st,2001,the Japanese DENTORI divide the control product into class A and class B products: Class A mainly include 165 kinds of products such as power cord, fuses, switches, transformers, ballasts, etc.; Class B mainly include lighting, home appliances, office equipment etc. Category A product must obtain the government compulsory certification,that is, T symbol which can only be issued by MITI in Japan. Class B product conformity must do self claims or apply for third party certification. After April 1st,2001,DENAN replaced DENTORI,Japan canceled T symbol at the same time,the government didn’t issue the certificates anymore but authorize the third party certification to do the Conformity assessment test for the products. The new rules divide the products into Sps and NSPs.Thereinto,the SPs include 112 kinds of products and NSPs include 340 kinds of products. The Sps products which enter Japanese market must have the third party certification with PSE( diamond) logo; the NSPs products must have self claims or apply for third party certification with PSE(round) logo. Since Nov.20th,2008,the lithium ion battery--the secondary lithium ion battery with energy density over 400 wh/L.(used by mobile equipment,desktop etc.) was included in the range of NSPs.  The following lithium battery is out of range: The lithium ion battery used for medical equipment, industrial equipment and car equipment; The batteries that cannot be easily removed from the products fixed by soldering or other methods; The batteries with special structure. The certification use JIS C 8712 as test standard for portable sealed secondary cell or battery safety requirement and JIS C 8714 as test standard for Portable devices’small lithium ion battery and storage battery.We can provide PES round mark certification service and help your products enter Japanese market smoothly. The PSE certification (Round mark) test items are as follows: continuous low voltage charging, vibration, high temperature stress, temperature cycle, the external short circuit, free fall, heat shock (collision), misuse (thermal shock), extrusion, low pressure, over-charging, forced discharge, high rate of charging protection function, Cell compulsory internal short circuit, electrical free fall KC South Korea standard technology institute announced on August 20th, 2008 that the new KC certification system will be carried out from on January 1st, 2009 ,MIKE(Ministry of Knowledge Economy)has made all the logo change to be KC logo as Korea certification logo with purpose of making consumer understand the certification logo on the purchased goods more clearly and reduce the burden cost for different certification from  manufacturers.  Korea KATS announced the standard used by Portable lithium secondary battery and lithium batteries:Self-Regulatory Safety Confirmation,Annex05 which was carried out since July 1st,2009 formally.At present,the test for Portable lithium secondary battery and lithium batteries must be done by the authorized lab. in Korea and can’t be changed from the CB report of IEC62133.After the product passed the evaluation,a 5-year Confirmation Letter of Declaration will be issued to the manufacturer and needn’t do factory audit during this period of time. the main product range of KC certification: Mainly to the lithium batteries and lithium battery pack which are portable and the energy density is more than 400 wh/L,the batteries are mainly used in electronics,such as navigation,Medical devices, bar code, MP3, laptop, digital camera etc. Vehicle driving battery and button cell are out of range.
