Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations: Proof of Classification
By: Joe McCarthy, Senior regulatory Affairs Specialist, email
Two years ago today the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations Part 2 was amended to require a Consignor of Dangerous goods to have available proof of classification document for 5 years after the date of shipment.
Proof of classification may be a test report, a lab report, or a document that explains how the dangerous good was classified. Proof of classification must include the date of classification, the 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.
OECD 435/Corrositex® is a quick, economical, and cruelty-free method to confirm Transportation Class and Packing Group and GHS Hazard Category for potentially corrosive materials.
