New, changed and deleted Dangerous Goods
Regulations change. By that, the information on dangerous goods changes too. New ones are added, or information on existing ones improve, whereas others become irrelevant.
Keep an overview
To keep track of the differences, we created a list of all updates for all regulations. This overview reflects the items of which information in the DG list from the related regulations have changed. One clear view presents information for each UN number, per regulation.

UN numbers and DGMIDs
Because of the many UN numbers, we have connected our own defined unique identifiers, named DGMIDs, to each variant. This comes in handy when digitalizing your transports and need a standard for digital data exchange.
UN numbers and Lithium Batteries
There are many updates and variations when it comes to Lithium batteries. Even though there are ‘only’ 4 UN numbers related to both lithium-ion batteries and lithium metal batteries, there are much more factors of influence. Therefore, it can be quite complex to find out how to ship them in the right way.
