To help facilitate training, collaboration and information sharing among our Global Engineering Teams, "Lunch & Learns" are scheduled regularly and cover a range of topics from internal engineering processes & product training to external market & industry updates. A recent topic at both of our Technical Centers (Americas & Asia) was on Global Battery Regulations. This session covered global transportation requirements and compliance regulations for lithium-ion batteries, such as:
- UN/DOT 38.3
- UL 1642
- UL 2054
- IEC 62133
- International Air Transport Association (IATA)
- International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG)
