Shipping suspect batteries and facilitating recalls – When it is suspected that a
lithium battery may pose safety risk whether it is the result of design,
manufacturing issues, potential abuse, or unauthorized repair, it is critical
to get to the root cause of the issue.
You may need to transport the batteries to a facility capable of conducting an analysis. You may need to have consumers, retail facilities, or distribution centers ship them to an appropriate location. In some cases they may need to be shipped for recycling or disposal. Shipping potentially damaged batteries is challenging because the regulations are complex and vary depending on whether you are shipping domestically or internationally.
