SC-225, Rechargeable Lithium Batteries & Battery Systems, established December 8, 2010, is developing certification guidance for small- and medium-sized rechargeable lithium batteries and battery systems. In 2013, the Committee developed DO-347, Certification Test Guidance for Small and Medium Sized Rechargeable Lithium Batteries and Battery Systems to provide certification guidance for batteries permanently installed in an aircraft, including those installed within line-replaceable units (LRUs). The group is working the revision of DO-311, Minimum Operational Performance Standard (MOPS) for Rechargeable Lithium Battery Systems to capture the most current understanding of lithium battery technology. It will help to ensure safety and efficiency in battery design, testing, installation and system management.
