The Commission also has directed staff to perform additional work to address the emerging and ongoing hazards associated with high energy density batteries, including but not limited to enforcement, voluntary and mandatory standards work, import surveillance and compliance, and industry, interagency and intergovernmental cooperation. This project shall address the emerging and ongoing hazards associated with devices powered by high energy density batteries, including but not limited to lithium-ion, lithium polymer and lithium iron phosphate batteries, as well as system safety features that ensure high energy density batteries, battery packs, safety circuits, end products and chargers all work together to achieve safe operation for the intended application. This work will inform future budgets and operating plans."
