Approved test methods for dangerous goods packaging

Safety starts with proper packaging!

Start 9 Laboratory 9 Dangerous goods
Safe shipping of explosive, flammable, toxic, hazardous goods starts with the right packaging. If hazardous goods are shipped, they must be specially packaged and labeled. There are a number of special regulations for this.

They regulate, among other things, which substances are classified as hazardous, how these are to be correctly declared in the shipping documents, and what must be observed during the transport of hazardous goods.

The proper shipment of dangerous goods is not only safe, but also saves trouble and, above all, costs. We are approved for third-party inspection of dangerous goods packaging made of steel, aluminum, plywood, corrugated board and plastic.

Ship dangerous goods safely – we tell you how


Safety is at the top of the list of requirements when looking for packaging for explosive, flammable, toxic or other dangerous goods. Here, the legislator demands precisely defined packaging­tests and regular inspections. And rightly so, because our credo is that we protect people, the environment and products with our testing procedures. Nowhere is this defined goal more important for our society than when it comes to hazardous goods.

Our offer to you: You can get advice from our experts on all questions concerning the proper packaging of hazardous substances and dangerous goods.
