He said batteries with nominal voltage of 6V were also included within the scope of the standard.

He said the standard would apply to batteries for passenger cars, for commercial and industrial vehicles for normal use; for commercial and industrial vehicles for severe use; and batteries for use in deep-cycling applications.
