Arrow Courier Services Ship 7 out of 9 Classes of Dangerous Goods

Dangerous goods are materials or items with hazardous properties which, if not properly controlled, present a potential hazard to human health and safety, infrastructure and/ or their means of transport.

The transportation of dangerous goods is controlled and governed by a variety of different regulatory regimes, operating at both the national and international levels.

Prominent regulatory frameworks for the transportation of dangerous goods include the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, ICAO’s Technical Instructions, IATA’s Dangerous Goods Regulations, European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road and the IMDG’s International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code.

Collectively, these regulatory regimes mandate the means by which dangerous goods are to be handled, packaged, labelled and transported.
