Why does the current Special Conditions CRI for non rechargeable batteries not explicitly state that it would be applicable to Batteries which were qualified to the ETSO C142 Standard?
Previous Means of Compliance proposed:
Due to missing a more appropriate standard, ETSO C-142a + Risk assessment at A/C level was an acceptable MoC to the SC contained in the CRI.
Current Means of Compliance proposed:
Minimum Operational Performance Standards (MOPS) for Non–Rechargeable Lithium Batteries DO-227A/ETSO C-142b + risk assessment at A/C level (limited to Special Conditions 3, 4, 5 & 6) is an acceptable MoC to the Special Conditions 1 to 6 contained in this CRI.
ETSO C-142b referring DO-227A material was published in 2020.
