BADGP is delighted to have a Memorandum of Understanding with the UK-based Chemical Hazards Communication Society, known as CHCS. This relationship offers benefits to members of both organisations.
The aims of the MoU are as follows:
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.
This webinar will be presented by Roy Boneham.
