Dangerous Goods 

What are considered dangerous goods?

Dangerous goods, also known as hazardous materials, encompass pure chemicals, blends of substances, manufactured items, or objects that can endanger human, animal, or environmental safety if improperly managed during usage or transportation. These materials or items, characterized by their hazardous properties, pose a significant risk to human health, safety, infrastructure, and transport methods if not adequately controlled.

Transportation of hazardous materials

The classification system outlined in the UN Model Regulations assigns each hazardous substance or item to one of 9 Classes based on the type of danger it poses. This system is designed to organize dangerous materials or articles into categories, some of which are further divided into sub-categories, to ensure their risks are accurately identified and managed.
