(1) These dangerous goods may be handled, offered for transport or transported under this shipping name if the dangerous goods are

(a)protected from short circuits; and

(b)capable of withstanding, without leakage of battery fluid, the following tests:

(i)a vibration test, in which

(A)the battery is rigidly clamped to the platform of a vibration machine and a simple harmonic motion having an amplitude of 0.8 mm (1.6 mm maximum total excursion) is applied,

(B)the frequency is varied in steps of 1 Hz each minute between the limits of 10 Hz and 55 Hz,

(C)the entire range of frequencies and return is traversed in 95 ▒ 5 minutes with 2 minutes spent at each frequency for each mounting position (direction of vibration) of the battery, and

(D)the battery is tested in three mutually perpendicular positions (to include testing with fill openings and vents, if any, in an inverted position) for equal time periods, and

(ii)after the vibration test, a pressure differential test, in which

(A)the battery is stored for 6 hours at 24░C ▒ 4░C while subjected to a pressure differential greater than or equal to 88 kPa, and

(B)the battery is tested in three mutually perpendicular positions (to include testing with fill openings and vents, if any, in an inverted position) for at least 6 hours in each position.

(2)These Regulations, except for Partá1 (Coming into Force, Repeal, Interpretation, General Provisions and Special Cases) and Partá2 (Classification), do not apply to UN2800, BATTERIES, WET, NON-SPILLABLE, electric storage, that are not intended for disposal, if

(a)at a temperature of 55░C, electrolyte will not flow from a ruptured or cracked battery case and there is no free liquid to flow; and

(b)when the battery is prepared for transport, the battery?s terminals are protected from short circuits.
