Wich requirements for

dangerous goods packaging ?

The transport of dangerous goods is governed by regulations that ensure the safety and smooth running of the process. 

In addition to the qualification of the personnel involved, whatever their level in the transport chain, we hear of packaging approval. Indeed, the transport of dangerous goods requires the use of conforming and approved packaging for this specific use. These approvals are necessary in order to meet the ADR - IATA - IMDG regulatory requirements. 

Controlling the conformity of approved packaging intended for the transport of dangerous goods is a real challenge. For transport, logistics and other industrial players (manufacturers) dealing with dangerous goods, it is necessary to be aware of the works and regulations in force in the context of :

  • the use of packaging
  • manufacturing of packaging

Packaging approval process diagram
Every dangerous good is classified by its UN number in different classes (from 1 to 9). The process of choosing the packaging corresponding to each of these goods is defined in a grid that includes the "UN" number and the mode of transport. This classification allows the carrier or packer to know which packaging(s) are, or are not, authorized to transport the concerned goods. 

To understand the process better, BVT offers a one-day awareness course on checking the compliance of your packaging.

Master the approval process and acquire the methodology and knowledge required to define the right type of packaging for the goods you are transporting. Develop your knowledge to choose your packaging independently.
