Carefully collect batteries and place in an appropriate container for disposal. Avoid eye and skin contact and inhalation of vapors and fumes. Clean-up personnel should wear appropriate protective clothing, such as: Chemical resistant gloves Protective clothing against splashing of corrosive products Safety Boots Goggle Face shield if there is a risk of splashing Environmental Precautions Methods for Containment Methods for Cleaning Up Notes 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE Handling: Batteries may explode, pyrolize or vent if disassembled, crushed, recharged or exposed to high temperatures. Install batteries in accordance with equipment instructions. Do not mix battery systems, such as alkaline and zinc carbon, in the same equipment. Replace all batteries in equipment at the same time. Do not carry batteries loose in a pocket or bag. Storage: Store batteries in a dry place at normal room temperature. Do not refrigerate. Batteries must remain oriented as packaged and shipped. Batteries may short circuit if positive end is allowed to contact one another or any metal objects. 8.

DSL EINECS ENCS IECSC PICCS AICS U.S. Federal Regulations SARA 313 SARA 311/312 Hazard Categories: Articles are not subject to reporting Acute Health Hazard Chronic Health Hazard Fire Hazard Sudden Release of Pressure Hazard Reactive Hazard Clean Water Act CERCLA U.S. State Regulations: This product has been evaluated and does not require warning labeling under California Proposition 65. US OSHA Status: While the finished product(s) is considered an article and not covered by the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, 29 CFR 1910.1200, this PSDS contains valuable information critical to the safe handling and proper use of the product". U.S. State Right-to-Know Regulations International Regulations: EU Classification of Preparation: Not classified as a dangerous preparation EU Battery Directive: Duracell alkaline batteries comply with the substance restriction limits and labeling requirements set forth in the EU Battery Directive 2006/66/EC and as a result contain <0.0005% (5 ppm) mercury, <0.002% (20 ppm) cadmium and <0.004% (40 ppm) lead. The chemical symbols Hg, Cd and Pb are therefore not required below the separate collection symbol. EU RoHS Directive: Batteries are not subject regulation. EU REACH: Subject battery products are "articles" under REACH and not subject to REACH registration or e-SDS requirements. To the best of our knowledge, Duracell alkaline batteries do not contain any of the 73 SVHC per the ECHA updated listed 12/19/2011. EU Labeling: None required. Labeling is not required because batteries are classified as articles under both REACH and the Dangerous Preparations Directive and as such are exempt from the requirement for labeling. Canada: All intentionally-added components of this product are listed on the Canadian DSL. This product has been classified in accordance with the hazard criteria of the Canadian Controlled Products Regulations (CPR) and this PSDS contains all information required by the Controlled Products Regulations. 16.
