No room for short cuts – Why you need to use a specialist battery supplier...

Posted on 27th January 2016

Amazon is being prosecuted by the UK Civil Aviation Authority over allegations it broke rules about transporting lithium ion batteries, which can be highly flammable, on aircraft.

Amazon UK Services denied 11 counts relating to carriage of dangerous goods on aircraft under air navigation regulations.

The retailer is accused of breaking rules regarding transportation of lithium ion batteries “which it knew or ought to have known or suspected to be goods capable of posing a risk to health, safety, property or the environment when carried by air . . . ” in contravention of air navigation rules, according to the indictment.

The case will go before a jury in September 2016 for a three-week trial.
