RTS TEST can provide you with lithium battery test (UN38.3 test) and consultation services
There have been plenty of safety accidents during transportation of lithium battery at home and abroad, so the international organizations such as the U.N. and IATA and national relevant departments such as CAAC demand to perform UN38.3 test and other test for transportation of lithium battery in accordance with the requirements of IATA DGR, to ensure transportation safety of battery by air and avoid unsafe incidents.
Lithium battery UN38.3 test (battery safety performance test)
RTS TEST has been authorized by CAAC to perform lithium battery UN38.3 test, and has been recognized by various airlines. RTS TEST also can conduct full set of safety performance test for various batteries according to domestic and international standards, in order to ensure product quality and safety and improve the ability of foreign exchange.
Lithium battery test is conducted according to the following standards

With the increasing domestic and international trade, a large number of magnetic products need to go through air transportation, such as the magnetic core, magnetic ring, magnets, motors, speakers, transformers, and various machine products containing these magnetic substances, mobile phones, cordless phones, radio tape players, stereos, headphones, battery-free flashlights, etc. As the weak magnetic field will interfere the aircraft's navigation system and control signals, according to the International Air Transport IATA 902 Related Provisions: from the measured object 2.1m (7ft) measured at the maximum magnetic field strength cannot exceed 0.159A / m (200nT), otherwise, the device must be under control in transportation and magnetic detection.
To comply with the trend of domestic economic development and provide clients with professional testing services,RTS TEST has added air cargo stray field test (magnetic test) since September, 2007, and has been approved by CNAS for this test item.
MSDS assessment services
MSDS, short for Matter Safety Datasheet, is a much detailed safety data specification for hazardous materials, including physicochemical parameters, hazard features, toxicity parameter, access limitation, health and environmental hazards, safe transportation, storage, and cautions for use, release emergency handling, emergency measures and info about regulations. The main role is to make users understand the relevant hazard of dangerous substances, and initiative take preventive action in the process of transportation, storage, using and handling in order to reduce occupational hazard, prevent accidents and reduce the adverse effect on environment.
