FAQ – E-Bike-Akku als Gefahrgut

All persons involved in the transportation of dangerous goods require instruction in accordance with 1.3 ADR. As the lithium batteries required for e-bikes are classified as dangerous goods, you require instruction. Instruction in accordance with dangerous goods legislation is mandatory and can be checked by the competent authority, e.g. in the course of monitoring or an incident.

The energy stored in a lithium-ion battery (=rechargeable battery) can be released through improper use, damage, overcharging or due to a structural defect. This can lead to short circuits, fires and, in extreme cases, explosions. Due to these properties, rechargeable batteries are classified as dangerous goods – as UN 3480 lithium-ion batteries.
