Global Dangerous Goods Database

Global Dangerous Goods Database is a hazardous materials/dangerous goods information system of the world and provides information regulations for dangerous goods, edited and condensed, which is required for the safe transport of dangerous goods. This service is meant for companies and authorities which plan, conduct or inspect dangerous goods transportation.

If you consign goods that are classified as potentially dangerous when transported, you must arrange their packing and transportation by air, sea, road, rail or inland waterway according to international regulations.

The UN Model Regulations harmonise the rules on the various methods of transportation into a classification system in which each dangerous substance or article is assigned to a class defining the type of danger which that substance presents. The packing group (PG) then further classifies the level of danger according to PG I, PG II or PG III.

Together class and PG dictate how you must package, label and carry dangerous goods, including inner and outer packaging, the suitability of packaging materials, and the marks and label they must bear.

Other regulations define the training and qualifications that dangerous goods drivers and safety advisors must hold, and when you must use one.
