The approval process for your packaging

Approving packaging is a cycle that, depending on certain characteristics, may not be clear and may seem long. BVT explains the approval cycle to make it easier for you to obtain approval.
In order to be transported in compliance with the regulations, dangerous goods must be packed in approved packagings according to chapters 6.1, 6.3, 6.5 or 6.6 of the ADR and IMDG. Different types of packaging and different approvals apply depending on the classification of the dangerous goods being tested. Once tested and approved, the packaging is labelled according to its characteristics and can be identified. Once the tests have been carried out and the packaging has been approved, a 5-year process begins. BVT supports companies in this certification cycle.

Properly packing hazardous materials also means limiting the risks associated with transport (chemical reaction, spillage, bursting of the package, etc.).

Is your company

ISO 9001 certified?

You thus benefit from a "lighter" certification cycle. After the first on-site manufacturing inspection, which must be carried out within 12 months of the issue of the approval certificate, you are exempt from annual on-site inspections until your ISO 9001 certificate is renewed.


Thus, on-site inspections only take place every 3 years.
