  • UN  number
  • Danger warning sign, displaying the ADR class of the goods
  • A transport document including all information about the dangerous goods must always follow the shipment

The Sender is responsible for the correct information in the transport document!
 


Exception  and exemptions
 
There are many exceptions and exemptions in the Dangerous goods regulations, due to variations in the type and volume of the dangerous goods.
The “limited amounts” exception – if only a small volume is being transported, the goods are considered “normal goods”
