Secondary cells and batteries - Marking symbols for identification of their chemistry

This document specifies methods for the clear identification of secondary cells, batteries,
battery modules and monoblocs according to their chemistry (electrochemical storage
technology).
The markings described in this document are applicable for secondary cells, batteries, battery
modules and monoblocs with a volume of more than 900 cm3.
The marking of the chemistry is useful for the installation, operation and decommissioning
phases of battery life.
Many recycling processes are chemistry specific, thus undesired events can occur when a
battery which is not of the appropriate chemistry enters a given recycling process. In order to
ensure safe handling during sorting and recycling processes, therefore, the battery is marked
so as to identify its chemistry.
This document defines the conditions of utilization of the markings indicating the chemistry of
these secondary batteries.
The details of markings and their application are defined in this document.
NOTE Nothing in this document precludes the marking of batteries with recycling and chemistry symbols required
by state, federal, national or regional laws or regulations or with a seal under license by a national recycling
program.

Sekundärbatterien - Symbole für die Kennzeichnung zur Identifikation ihrer Chemie

Batteries d'accumulateurs - Symboles de marquage pour l'identification de leur caractéristique chimique

Le présent document spécifie les méthodes permettant d'identifier clairement les batteries d'accumulateurs, batteries, modules de batteries et monoblocs selon leur caractéristique chimique (technologie de stockage électrochimique). Les marquages décrits dans le présent document s'appliquent aux accumulateurs, batteries, modules de batteries et monoblocs ayant un volume supérieur à 900 cm3. Le marquage de la caractéristique chimique sert à l'installation, au fonctionnement et à la mise hors service de la batterie. Dans la mesure où de nombreux procédés de recyclage dépendent de la caractéristique chimique, des événements non désirés peuvent se produire lorsqu'une batterie dont la caractéristique chimique n'est pas appropriée est soumise à un procédé de recyclage donné. Par conséquent, afin d'assurer une manipulation sûre pendant les processus de tri et de recyclage, il est nécessaire de marquer la batterie afin d'identifier sa composition chimique. Le présent document définit les conditions d'utilisation des marquages indiquant la caractéristique chimique des batteries d'accumulateurs. Les détails des marquages et leur application sont définis dans le présent document. NOTE Le présent document n'exclut pas le marquage des batteries avec les symboles de recyclage et de caractéristiques chimiques exigés par les réglementations ou lois étatiques, fédérales, nationales ou régionales, ou avec un seau sous licence par un programme de recyclage national.

Sekundarne celice in baterije: Simboli za označevanje za identifikacijo kemične sestave

Ta dokument določa metode za jasno identifikacijo sekundarnih celic, baterij, baterijskih modulov in monoblokov glede na njihovo kemijsko sestavo (tehnologija elektrokemičnega shranjevanja).
Oznake, opisane v tem dokumentu, se uporabljajo za sekundarne celice, baterije, baterijske module in monobloke, katerih prostornina presega 900 cm3.
Oznaka kemijske sestave je uporabna za faze montaže, delovanja in razgradnje baterije.
Številni postopki recikliranja so specifični glede na kemijsko sestavo, zato lahko pride do neželenih dogodkov, če v dani postopek recikliranja vstopi baterija, ki ni ustrezne kemijske sestave. Za namen zagotavljanja varnosti ravnanja med postopki razvrščanja in recikliranja je baterija označena tako, da je mogoče prepoznati njeno kemijsko sestavo.
Ta dokument določa pogoje uporabe oznak, ki označujejo kemijsko sestavo teh sekundarnih baterij.
Podrobnosti o oznakah in njihovi uporabi so navedene v tem dokumentu.
OPOMBA: Nobena navedba v tem dokumentu ne nasprotuje označevanju baterij s simboli za recikliranje in kemijsko sestavo, ki jih zahtevajo državni, zvezni, nacionalni ali regionalni zakoni ali drugi predpisi, ali s pečatom pod licenco nacionalnega programa za recikliranje.

SECONDARY CELLS AND BATTERIES –
MARKING SYMBOLS FOR IDENTIFICATION OF THEIR CHEMISTRY
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 62902 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 21:

Secondary cells and batteries.
The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
21/990/FDIS 21/994/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this International Standard can be found in

the report on voting indicated in the above table.
