Lithium battery marks will no longer be required to show the telephone number on the battery. This is being phased out through December 2026, allowing businesses to get through their current stock and have time to make the updates necessary. This will apply to road transport, train transport, and all aircraft that could be carrying this type of battery at any given time.
