UL have revised their UL 4200A– Products Incorporating Button Batteries or Coin Cell Batteries. The scope has been updated to include:

1.1 These requirements cover household type products that incorporate or may use button batteries or coin cell batteries.

1.2 These requirements do not cover products that exclusively use zinc-air battery technologies.

1.2A These requirements do not cover toy products that comply with battery accessibility and labeling requirements of ASTM F963, Safety Standard for Toys.

1.3 These requirements apply to consumer products containing button batteries or coin cells batteries. They do not apply to products that by virtue of their dedicated purpose and instructions are not intended to be used in locations where they may be accessed by children, such as products for dedicated professional use or commercial use in locations where children are not normally or typically present.

1.4 These requirements are intended to supplement other safety requirements for products that incorporate button batteries or coin cell batteries, and are not intended to supersede specific requirements that are incorporated into other safety standards to mitigate physiological hazards from button batteries or coin cells batteries.
