Transport Canada is investigating
B. Brief introduction to RichmondC.
Companies related to air transportation of potentially dangerous lithium-ion batteries.
In four incidents under investigation, two batteries allegedly used for electric bicycles exploded at the back of the FedEx truck as they were imported into Canada by a doctor\'s plane. Battery—
It is also known as Richmond international technology.
In another incident, UPS staff in Kentucky marked 52 defective laptop batteries allegedly shipped by the company.
Originally packed in cardboard boxes, before being shipped to the north under a special permit for further inspection by Transport Canada, it must be re-sealed with a metal bucket full of flame retardant.
Details of the investigation are included in the information that was sworn in on September to obtain a warrant for a doctor.

The documents claimed to have violated the dangerous goods transport act.
Transport Canada has confirmed that the investigation is still ongoing, but no charges have yet been made.
The case puts Canada at the heart of one of the most hotly debated issues in the aviation sector.
Lithium-ion batteries are everywhere in modern life.
They power mobile phones, laptops, electric cars, power tools and many other devices.
But rechargeable energy storage devices also have the ability to ignite spontaneously, both in bulk and carried by passengers to the aircraft, posing major challenges to airline regulation.
A report from the Emirates Civil Aviation Administration noted that a UPS Boeing747 cargo machine had more than 81,000 lithium-ion batteries on it and crashed when it caught fire after leaving Dubai.
Both pilots are dead.
On last October, Air Canada staff at Pearson International Airport reported that a tray containing lithium
The ion Battery of the electric bike to the Austrian Airlines flight caught fire on the ramp.
The Transportation Safety Commission said the accident was still under investigation.
\"This is probably the main focus of our decade or so.
Mark Rogers said: \"Many of the things we carry on the plane have the possibility of spontaneous fire without a second ignition source, and any fire on the plane is very, very serious, \"the director of the dangerous goods program of the Airline Pilots Association, representing 51,000 pilots from 35 airlines in Canada and the United States.
\"This is a very big area of concern and one of the few things that are currently causing fires in the freight department on the plane. \"Dr.

The investigation began in April when UPS staff in Louisville found a defective battery that was apparently sent back to Hong Kong.
\"In some photos, there are clear signs that the defect was caused by a fire and that some batteries had a fire when they were burnt,\" the document wrote . \".
The search warrant said that 18 boxes of batteries were loaded into trucks and delivered to Mei post-doc by FedEx, and the second incident was reported
Battery: \"He heard two explosions and observed a case being lifted from the shelf.
The box then started smoking from inside out and was eventually burned.
The document says the electric bicycle battery has been shipped from Shenzhen, China and is said to have been marked as \"unrestricted\" under international regulations related to watt lithium ion batteries\"
An hourly rating of less than 100.
White stickers for several of these batteries cover the manufacturer\'s information, showing Watt-
The hourly rating is 325. 6.
They were fully charged during transportation.

He allegedly received a certificate of training for dangerous goods.
\"I checked the training certificate and noted that it was a valid certificate of training for dangerous goods, but it only applies to road transport,\" Chung wrote . \".
\"All the goods we have been concerned about are air cargo, which requires specific air training for the transportation of dangerous goods.
\"In January 2013, the International Civil Aviation Organization will implement stricter regulations on the transportation of lithium-ion batteries.
These rules mean that more batteries will be treated as fully regulated dangerous goods and included in the pilot notification form.
They also provide better training and better packaging for shippers.

The organization represents the interests of manufacturers producing 70% lithium-ion batteries worldwide.
He would not comment on the Canadian investigation, but said the shipper was critical to the safety regulations and international coordination of ICAO rules.
\"Shippers are a key component of the transportation problem.
\"They are the people who provide these services to airlines,\" he said . \".
\"They are the first people to enter the business stream.
Therefore, they are the key components to ensure that these batteries are packaged in accordance with the regulations, so that they can be transported safely.
The pilot wants to see more stringent restrictions in the future, which will limit the total number of batteries and eliminate exceptions, which means the crew will not be told that there is some cargo on board, Rogers said.
He said fire fighting is also a huge problem on cargo planes.
\"I want to say that we have made a lot of very, very good progress, but we have not yet reached the level we need,\" Rogers said . \".
\"What we want to see is that all of these batteries are identified so that the crew knows what they are carrying and the total number of ships is also limited to an event if there is one, the fire fighting system on the plane can handle it.
\"Last month, the Federal Aviation Administration released a list of 132 aviation accidents involving batteries since March 1991.
This list includes incidents involving goods and individual passengers.
In the past year alone, staff have reported burning batteries connected to air purifiers, laptops and self
Push the surfboard.
The list also noted that there were two incidents at Vancouver International Airport last year: one was that the camera battery of Delta passengers started smoking at the gate, the other is checked baggage that involves the start of burning during the YVR transfer, which explodes when the agent mentions the baggage.
The subsequent inspection found two large battery packs.
People from all sides said that it is unrealistic to ban lithium-ion batteries from flying.
But Rogers said passengers should not put their luggage in.
\"One of the most important things is to make sure that if you have any spare batteries, the battery will be protected and will not be short-circuited.
So in most cases
Like most passengers, putting them in the cabin is the safest course of action.

Battery said the investigation by the Canadian Department of Transport is still in progress and the company will not comment on it.
