Packaging for dangerous goods
Dangerous Goods shipments are subject to the strict regulations of IATA, IMDG, ADR and the
other national and international dangerous goods regulations
A transport of dangerous goods should be well thought out from the first until the last phase to minimize any risks and possible delays and to avoid the expected additional costs.
How a hazardous material must be sent depends on several factors, among others:
- Which hazardous substances to be sent?
- What inner packagings are used?
- What is the net qunatitiy of the inner packagings
- What quantities of hazardous substances are sent?
- The final destination of the shipment?
Please keep in mind that is only the packaging between the hazardous material and the environment. This packaging protects your goods and the environment.
After proper packaging of the hazardous substance, the packages must be declared and labeled in accordance with the hazardous material.
All modes of transport have defined in their rules just like a declaration of dangerous goods is to take place, and the form and the content of the package label.
Compliance with these rules ensures that all participants exactly in the transport chain know what you should look for when dealing with your shipment.
Correct and complete marking is necessary for the packages to identify with dangerous content and to ensure appropriate use. By marking the packages they must be clearly examined, identified and allocated.
The allowable types of packaging and the maximum allowable net amounts are fixed for each hazardous material in the regulations. These depend on the danger level of the hazardous substance. If the danger level of the substance is high, less net contents must be packed and transported per package.
Some hazardous materials are even forbidden for transport.
Some hazardous materials are even free from the requirements depending upon the amounts which are contained in a package.
