Change to IMDG Code Amendment 35 - Vehicles with combustion engine, fuelled with petrol or diesel to be declared as hazardous cargo

14 Nov 2011

Hapag-Lloyd likes to inform you about an IMDG Code rule change that will become effective January 1, 2012.

We would like to inform you about an IMDG Code rule change that will become effective January 1, 2012. Articles with an internal combustion engine will fall within the scope of the IMDG Code and must be notified to carriers as dangerous goods, UN 3166, Class 9. A dangerous goods declaration and document will be required.

UN 3166 can apply to a wide range of articles including cars, vehicles, plant, boats and any equipment with an internal combustion engine that has either a connected battery or fuel tank containing flammable liquid (petrol or diesel) or flammable gas such as propane.

For IMDG/ADR hazard classification UN 3166, Class 9, Special Provisions 312, 356 and 962 are applicable in the IMDG Code and assist in determining the classification requirements for various types of equipment.

Special Provision 961 describes technical measures that can be taken to neutralise the hazard of fuel and batteries and allow the articles to be consigned as non-hazardous, but that involves isolating the battery and removing the fuel from the tanks – technically difficult to achieve in many cases.

To provide further details we have attached the Special Provisions 312, 356, 961 and 962 from the IMDG Code Amendment 35 and the Dangerous Goods List on the below PDF download.
