Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations: Proof of Classification
By: Joe McCarthy, Senior regulatory Affairs Specialist, email
2 years ago today the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations Part 2 were amended to require a Consignor of Dangerous goods to have available a proof of classification document for 5 years after the date of shipment.
Proof of classification may be a test report, a lab report or document that explains how the dangerous good were classified. Proof of classification must include that date of classification, technical name of the dangerous goods, classification of dangerous goods and the method of classification under TDGR part 2 of Chapter 2 of the UN TDG recommendations.
