Corrigenda I (November 2020)
Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, also known as the UN Orange Book, is the basis for the development of the international regulations concerning the transport of dangerous goods as well as most national legislations. This publication covers all modes of transport: road, sea and air.
These recommendations have been developed in the light of technical progress, the advent of new substances and materials, the exigencies of modern transport systems and above all, the requirement to ensure the safety of people, property and the environment. They are addressed to governments and international organisations concerned with the regulation of the transport of dangerous goods. The Model Regulations cover the classification of dangerous goods, their listing, the use, construction, testing and approval of packagings and portable tanks, as well as consignment procedures such as marking, labeling, placarding and documentation.
The Manual of Tests and Criteria contains test methods and procedures to be used for classification of dangerous goods according to the provisions of Parts 2 and 3 of the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Model Regulations, as well as of chemicals presenting physical hazards according to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). As a consequence, it also supplements national or international regulations which are derived from the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods or the GHS.
The classification procedures, test methods and criteria contained in the Manual of Tests and Criteria are divided into three parts, as follows:
Part I: those relating to assignment of explosives to Class 1.
Part II: those relating to assignment of self-reactive substances to Division 4.1 and of organic peroxides to Division 5.2;
Part III: those relating to assignment of substances or articles to Class 3, Class 4, Division 5.1 and Class 9.
