Manufacturers, retailers and industries involved in the making, shipping and use of lithium batteries have appealed to US senators with concerns on the FAA’s  Reauthorisation Act of 2016, on the safe transport of the batteries. They claim the new requirements, which came in on April 1, cause unnecessary disruption and cost, and that without legal enforcement of non-compliance, the problem would continue anyway. A letter urges the Senate to amend Section 2317 and put an end to “inconsistent and inappropriate regulations”. An interesting missive for anyone following the twists and turns of the lithium battery story.
