Webinar: Connecting the dots between the UN Transport and UN GHS Committees, classification for transport and communication requirements

    Webinar Overview

    The regulations for the transport of dangerous goods pre-date the Globally Harmonised System (GHS) by some 45 years, originating back in the 1950s. The scope of the transport committee has been expanded over the last 70 years or so, both in what is classified as a dangerous good for transport and in the number and type of containment systems permitted for their conveyance.

    During this webinar, the connection between the transport and GHS subcommittees at UN level will be explained. The additional classification rules for transport, defining whether a substance or mixture is classified for transport but not for GHS, will also be explained on a multi-modal basis.

    The requirements for consignors/shippers to convey necessary transport information and data will also be discussed in the context of the ‘Safety Obligations of the Participants’ as laid out in Chapter 1.4 of the RID and ADR, or as imposed on the signatory of the transport documents for air and sea transport.

    You may wish to have a copy of the dangerous goods list available during this webinar. You can find access to volume one of adr 2023 which contains the list here: https://unece.org/sites/default/files/2023-01/ADR2023_Vol1e.pdf
