Transporting Limited Quantities

Saturday, April 20, 2013 - 10:45

If you’re shipping dangerous goods in limited quantities, you don’t need to follow all the normal rules for labelling and packaging. You also don’t need a dangerous goods safety adviser.

Staff training.

However, your staff will still need to undertake dangerous goods safety training.

So what or how is a limited quantity of dangerous goods defined?

Anything that is packed in containers, less than 0.5 kilo’s or 0.5 litres is considered to be a ‘limited quantity’. You must ensure that they are boxed or in shrink wrapped trays.

The amount you can transport (or carry), depends on its actual code. You can find the code for goods you want to ship on page 293 in part 3 of the ADR.

See the dangerous goods limited quantities table below, or move on to the next step using the buttons!
