Alcohol Based Hand Sanitizers are Considered Dangerous Goods: Important Shipping Information
By: Ivy Tang, Product Safety Specialist, email
If your business is manufacturing or importing alcohol-based hand sanitizers for sale or for free distribution in Canada to assist with the COVID-19 pandemic, you should be aware of the following information:
- Your product is FLAMMABLE and will be considered Dangerous Goods for transportation. You must test your product for its flashpoint.
- The interim transport regulations only allow shipping under specific UN numbers. Special packaging and labelling conditions must be in place.
- Many places such as retailers and hospitals will request an SDS. Do you have one prepared?
Dell Tech can ensure you remain compliant under these terms, per the temporary certificate issued by Transport Canada.
We provide Flash Point testing (ASTM D56 and ASTM DFD93) and SDS authoring, in addition to procuring a product and site licenses for your business. We are a one-stop shop for all your needs.
While these interim regulations are in effect, Dell Tech is offering a discount on hand sanitizer SDSs. We have discounted our regular two language SDS authoring price from $450 down to $300 for a limited time to support your hand sanitizer business.
Contact Dell Tech today for more information.
