Transport regulations are updated every one or two years, depending on the regulation. These updates and possible addendums have impact on information on dangerous goods too. New UN numbers are added, information on existing ones change, whereas some even become non-existent.
Keep an overview
To keep track of differences, we have created a list of all updates for all regulations. This overview reflects the dangerous goods of which information in the DG list from the related regulations have changed. One clear overview presents information for each UN number, per regulation.
The latest dangerous goods list available is valid from January 2024.
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.
