ABYC E-13 Compliance for Lithium Batteries

The new ABYC standard for lithium batteries came out today. E13.5.4 requires lithium batteries or cells to meet the testing requirements of at least one of the following standards: IEC 62133, IEC 62619, IEC 62620. SAE J2929, UL1642, UL1973, or UL 2054.

I can’t find anything in Victron literature about these standards.

Does anyone know whether Victron Smart lithium batteries are or will be certified to one of these standards? I was hoping to install Victron lithium batteries on my US-flagged boat this year, but to keep my insurance I need the installation to be ABYC compliant.
