BAMA launches Transport Guide

The British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association has launched the newly revised, 10th Edition, of its International Transport of Aerosols Guide. The comprehensive guide covers the transport of dangerous goods regulations which apply from now.

Dr. Paul Jackson, BAMA’s Technical Director, said: “Aerosols are classified as dangerous goods for transport and the regulations therefore require that any shipments must be fully declared and adequately packaged, including sample products. The Guide provides a valuable route map through the complex legislation, covering UK and international transport.”
The Guide, which is free to BAMA members, covers how to consign aerosols for transport in each mode, the classification, packaging, testing, marking and labeling necessary as well as which documentation needed. It outlines training needs for staff engaged in transportation and preparing goods for shipment via road, rail, sea or air.

BAMA is also arranging a training course on the topic, which like the Guide is free to BAMA members, on May 15.
