What Is UN Packaging


What is UN Approved Packaging UN Approved Packaging:

In most cases, the transportation of Dangerous Goods (the main exemption being limited quantities) must be in packaging which is certified to UN standards. The international agreements for the carriage of dangerous goods require packaging to be of a design-type certified by a national competent authority. This involves testing the packaging to ensure its suitability for the carriage of certain dangerous goods. Such packagings are often referred to as “type-approved” or “UN certified”. Such packaging is marked in particular ways, prefixed by the UN logo and followed by codes, the details of which may be found in part 6 of ADR.
