Title CHCS Training “Classification For Transport” (Module 8)
Organiser Chemical Hazards Communication Society (CHCS)
Location Novotel Manchester Centre Hotel, 21 Dickinson Street, Manchester, M1 4LX

Using ADR, this module provides an introduction to the classification and identification of dangerous goods for transport. This is the vital first step necessary to transport dangerous goods safely, providing the means to interrogate the regulations to determine for example: suitable packaging, operational requirements and labelling and documentation as covered in Module 10.

Many consignors immerse themselves in the requirements of the supply (CLP) regulations and the classification rules enshrined. They often struggle to understand that there is a separate classification regime for transport, and to understand how transport and CLP rules may or may not be linked. Now that the CLP Regulations are in use, transport and supply are getting closer, but how close? 

Who Should Attend?

This module is aimed at those taking on responsibilities for the classification of dangerous goods for transport, in particular those who have responsibility for Section 14 of the Safety Data Sheet. It will show participants how to find the classification rules in the various modal regulations, concentrating on the rules for road and sea whilst giving some understanding of the differences for air.

Benefits of Attending
