I attended an EPA seminar in Dallas, Texas last November on lead and tri reporting last year and that question was asked. The instructor said batteries used in forklifts may be exempt from reporting provided they are not altered or otherwise tampered with in a way that exposed employees to the lead plates inside. I'd suggest you call Warren Layne with EPA to get a clarification. Don't have his number handy but it should be on EPA's directory.
