The Lithium Battery Mark is required on packages carrying lithium ion or lithium metal batteries. These marks are preprinted with UN3481 and the CHEMTREC emergency contact information. Labelmaster is the exclusive authorized label manufacturer of CHEMTREC. Only companies registered with CHEMTREC are authorized to purchase and use these labels. You may receive follow up from CHEMTREC regarding your customer status. The marking size is 100mm x 70mm and the label size is 102mm x 76mm. These Lithium Battery Marks are constructed of semi-gloss paper and sold in rolls of 500.
Please note: These labels became effective for use on January 1, 2021, but this reduced size lithium battery mark has not been officially adopted in the 49 CFR for use in the U.S due to a regulatory harmonization delay. PHMSA has issued an enforcement waiver allowing them to be used in the U.S. by any mode of transportation until officially adopted as a Final Rule. A copy of the waiver is available under the Regulatory tab for these items.
