What certification is required for the export of lithium battery products?

Date:2019-10-14

一. Lithium Battery Air Transport Certificate (UN38.3 Certification)

UN38.3 test is a mandatory test to ensure that lithium batteries can be safely transported by air and sea. Suitable for almost all over the world, belongs to safety and performance testing, as long as it involves airborne shipment packages containing lithium batteries, whether small button batteries, batteries installed on equipment, or batteries packaged with equipment. UN38.3 tests are required and air traffic identification reports are obtained before air inspection can be carried out.

 

二. IEC 62133 Certificate

IEC 62133 is the most important international standard for lithium-ion batteries in the world, and also an important basis for IECEE-CB certification. At present, Japan, Korea, Thailand, India and other countries have adopted IEC 62133 to formulate their own national standards, which have become an important basis for market access of these countries.The latest version of IEC 62133 was released on February 7, 2017. IEC 62133 is under the responsibility of IEC/SC21A. WG4 is responsible for the formulation of IEC 62133. The first edition was released in 2002 and the second edition in 2012.

 

三. CE Certificate

The scope of application is EU region, divided into safety and performance test. CE certification belongs to self-declaration. If the manufacturer has the ability to test, it can affix the CE conformity label to his products and sell in Europe. However, if they fail to pass the spot check in the European market, they will be recalled and subject to severe fines. Therefore, many domestic manufacturers have entrusted a third party to carry out the test, which largely avoids the risk of recall.

 

四. Japanese PSE Certificate

Suitable for Japan, mainly for safety and performance testing. "Specific electrical appliances and materials" products entering the Japanese market must be certified by a third party licensed by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan, indicating the PSE diamond logo. "Non-specific electrical appliances and materials" products are required to make self-declaration or apply for third-party certification, marking the PSE circular logo.

 

五. Korean KC Certificate

Applicable to Korea, test standard KC62133. Special attention should be paid to the battery KC certification depends on whether the battery has been KC or CB certification. If the cell has been made into CB or KC, it will be directly made into battery KC at a cost of 15,000 to 20,000 yuan. If the cell is not made, it will cost 30,000 to 35,000 yuan to make the whole product.

 

六. NOM Certification in Mexico

Mexico's official NORMA issued the standard NOM-212-SCFI-2017, which covers primary batteries and batteries - maximum allowable limits for mercury and cadmium content - specifications, testing methods and labeling requirements. All batteries or cells not sold separately as components of electronic and electrical products do not need to apply for Mexican NOM certification. The standards will be implemented on 28 September 2019.

 

七. BIS Certification in India

The current standard IS16046:2015/IEC62133:2012 will expire on July 11, 2019, and the new standards IS16046 (Part1): 2018/IEC6213301:2017, IS16046 (Part2): 2018/IEC6213301:2017 will be published and updated. Users need to complete the registration application before this.

 

八. SII certification in Israel

The import of lithium batteries and live products from Israel must be certified by SII (full name:TheStandardsInstitutionofIsrael)of Israel Standards Association. All electronic and electrical products entering Israel must obtain SII certification. Israel is also a member of IEECEE-CB and can accept CB test reports issued by its IECEE-CB member states.

 

九. IEC 62133 Certificate

IEC 62133 is the most important international standard for lithium-ion batteries in the world, and also an important basis for IECEE-CB certification. At present, Japan, Korea, Thailand, India and other countries have adopted IEC 62133 to formulate their own national standards, which have become an important basis for market access of these countries. IEC 62133 was released on February 7, 2017. IEC 62133 is under the jurisdiction of IEC/SC21A. WG4 is responsible for the formulation of IEC 62133. The first edition was released in 2002 and the second edition in 2012.

 

十. UL certification in the United States and Canada

In 2016, UL in the United States has developed certification standards related to lithium batteries, covering the United States and Canada, aiming at equipments equipped with lithium batteries:

UL2272 Personal E-Mibility Devices (including suspension skateboards);

UL2849 electric bicycle eBikes; electric motorcycle eMotorbikes; electric scooter eScooters;

UL3030 Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or Drones.

 

十一. Taiwan Area

In June 2018, the Taiwan Standards Bureau issued a circular to implement the revised BSMI inspection regulations on January 1, 2019, amending the relevant inspection requirements for lithium batteries.

3C secondary lithium battery mobile power supply;

3C secondary lithium single batteries/batteries (except button batteries);

Secondary lithium batteries/batteries for electric locomotives;

Secondary lithium batteries/batteries for electric bicycles;

Secondary lithium batteries/batteries for electric assisted bicycles;           

3C battery charger (limited inspection of 3C battery charger for AC/DC conversion);           

Electric vehicle charger (non-vehicle type);           

AC to DC power adapter;           

Two types of products do not require inspection certificates: medical batteries, lithium batteries and lithium batteries.
