Carriage of dangerous goods in Bulk Bags and FIBCs

All the Bulk Bags we manufacture can be UN Certified

Carriage of dangerous and hazardous goods in Bulk Bags by road, sea and rail carry the risk of accidents leading to possible spillage or leakage that could create a risk such as fire, explosion, chemical burn or an environmental issue.

Dangerous goods are those that have been classified to have hazardous materials in all or part of them according to international regulations. The various types of materials are then grouped into 9 classes for identification.

UN Certified & ADR Bulk Bag Classifications

Regulations are in place to ensure that those who come into contact during the transportation process or emergency services in the case of an incident, are able to quickly identify the materials being transported to provide a suitable response. These regulations are known as ADR or (“Accord européen relatif au transport international des marchandises dangereuses par route”).

It is, therefore, a legal requirement that dangerous goods are packaged in containers that are “type approved” or certified to UN standards as suitable for transportation of these materials.

UN Certified Packaging is marked clearly to indicate hazardous materials are being transported.
