ICAO Energy Storage Devices Working Group

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Dangerous Goods Panel (DGP) created the Energy Storage Devices Working Group to ensure provisions related to the transport of lithium batteries or other energy storage devices and supporting guidance material enable an acceptable level of safety. The DGP assigned the working group a task to complete a safety risk assessment on lithium batteries packed with or contained in equipment. This analysis would identify hazards and existing mitigating measures. The outcomes of this work will inform the DGP as it considers proposals to amend the ICAO Technical Instructions during its meetings in May 2023 and November 2023.
