Dangerous goods registration, UN number and dangerous goods classes

In addition, the packaging must be visibly marked as dangerous goods and classified in the appropriate dangerous goods class. This is the only way to ensure proper handling during the transport of dangerous goods and proper storage of the dangerous goods in the truck.
Marking for the transport of dangerous goods
The marking of the packaging material in the case of transport of dangerous goods with a forwarding agent is carried out with a danger label and a UN number. The UN number is a substance number that allows unique identification of the dangerous goods.
