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

Rev. 6 December 2015

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 Model Regulations, as well as of chemicals presenting physical hazards according to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals. As a consequence, it supplements also national and international regulations.

This publication contains classification procedures, test methods and criteria relating to substances and articles such as explosives, self-reacting substances, organic peroxides, flammable aerosols, flammable liquids, oxidizing substances, corrosive substances, and miscellaneous other dangerous goods such as fertilizers and lithium cells and batteries.

This sixth revised edition includes all the amendments to the fifth revised edition adopted by the Committee at its fifth and sixth sessions in 2010 and 2012 (published under the symbols ST/SG/AC.10/11/Rev.5/Amend.1 and ST/SG/AC.10/11/Rev.5/Amend.2) and those adopted at its seventh session in 2014 (ST/SG/AC.10/42/Add.2).

The new amendments adopted in 2014 address in particular:

A new test to measure the sensitiveness of the substance to drop-mass impact and to determine if the substance is too dangerous to transport in the form tested (Section 13, Test 3 (a) (vii): Modified Bureau of Mines impact machine test);
Updated procedures for the classification of lithium metal and lithium ion cells and batteries (sub-section 38.3);
A new test procedure for the classification of substances of Class 9 which may evolve flammable vapours (sub-section 38.4);
A new Part V containing schemes for the classification of desensitized explosives for supply and use (including storage) according to the GHS;
A new test for the classification of cartridges, small arms (UN No. 0012) (Appendix 9); and Updating of miscellaneous existing provisions.
