Abstract This manual presents the United Nations scheme for the classification of certain types of dangerous goods and describes the test methods and procedures considered to be the most useful for the classification of substances and articles for transport. Includes procedures and criteria relating to explosives, self-reactive substances, organic peroxides, flammable aerosols and oxidizing substances. These recommendations supplement the "Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods" (CIS 03-1036) and may also be used in connection with the "Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals" (CIS 03-822).
