professional training in standardized operation, safety and environmental protection
and emergency treatment, etc.; pass the examination, before they can take up their posts.
5 Work requirements
5.1 Workflow
5.1.1 The dismantling operation process of a cell shall be as shown in Figure 1, OR in
accordance with the dismantling operation instructions, which are formulated by the
dismantling enterprise.
5.1.2 The type, weight and other information of the cell shall be collected, before
dismantling the cell.
5.3.2 For cells, which are discharged by external circuit method or immersion method,
voltage detection shall be carried out, according to the requirements of 5.2.
5.3.3 If the enterprise has live treatment technology, it can carry out live treatment,
under the premise of ensuring safety.
5.4 Classification
5.4.1 The cells shall be classified. The appropriate dismantling operation process and
