In 2016, in line with IATA regulations, air-transport conditions for batteries and accumulators made of metal lithium and lithium ions became more severe. Coin cells and batteries containing small quantities of lithium metal (less than 0.3 g), as used e.g. in certain multifunction watches, are subject to a special provision that is applied by all companies of the Swatch Group.
Renata SA has compiled a specific manual for internal and external usage. This will enable the correct choice of packaging for each of the specified transport modes.
