Specialist Printing - THE TRANSPORT OF CHEMICAL SUBSTANCES

3 SP215 50 51 1Source: SPECIALIST PRINTING WORLDWIDE

Elaine Campling explains the implications for moving print-related products

Many chemical substances used by industry in printing inks, adhesives and cleaning products, for example, are classified as environmentally hazardous (aquatic pollutants). These chemicals are typically used at concentrations that result in an environmentally hazardous rating for products.

If a substance/mixture is only classified for transport as environmentally hazardous i.e. not classified under any other transport hazard class, then one of two UN numbers in
Class 9 (Miscellaneous dangerous substances and articles) must be assigned:
UN3077 ENVIRONMENTALLY HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE, SOLID, N.O.S.
or
UN3082 ENVIRONMENTALLY HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE, LIQUID, N.O.S

The United Nations (UN) number is a four-digit number that identify hazardous substances, and articles in the framework of international transport.
