Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria

Ed. 5a Amendment 2

The Manual of Tests and Criteria contains criteria, test methods and procedures to be used for classification of dangerous goods according to the provisions of Parts 2 and 3 of the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Model Regulations, as well as of chemicals presenting physical hazards according to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).

As a consequence, it supplements also national or international regulations which are derived from the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods or the GHS.

Originally developed by the Economic and Social Council’s Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods which adopted a first version in 1984, it has been regularly updated and amended every two years. Presently, the updating is done under the auspices of the Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods and on the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals, which replaces the original committee since 2001.

The fifth revised edition, published in 2009, includes all the amendments to the fourth revised edition adopted by the Committee at its second and third sessions in 2004 and 2006 (published under the symbols ST/SG/AC.10/11/Rev.4/Amend.1 and ST/SG/AC.10/11/Rev.4/Amend.2) and those adopted at its fourth session in 2008 (ST/SG/AC.10/36/Add.2 and -/Corr.1). 

Amendment 1 to the fifth revised edition includes all the amendments adopted by the Committee at its fifth session (10 December 2010) and the corrections adopted by the Sub-Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous at its thirty-ninth session (20-24 June 2011)

At its sixth session (14 December 2012), the Committee adopted a new set of amendments to the fifth revised edition which are reproduced in this Amendment 2.

Amendment 2 includes: amendments to test series 7 for the classification as extremely insensitive explosive article; amendments to test series 8 for the classification as ammonium nitrate emulsion or suspension or gel, intermediate for blasting explosives (ANE); amendments to test series H, used to determine the self-accelerating decomposition temperature of organic peroxides and self-reactive substances; amendments to the procedures to be followed for the classification of liquid desensitized explosives and flammable liquids of Class 3; a new test method for oxidizing solids; and amendments to test T6 for lithium batteries.
