Did you know ?

In many industrial companies, residues and empty, uncleaned packaging, which are shipped as waste, have the right waste code but rarely the right transport classification.

And yet, vigilance is required because this classification determines the shipping and transport procedures: training, packaging, identification, exemption, documentation. Incorrect classification or identification of hazardous materials can lead to costly violations.
