Abstract This is the 3rd edition of the Approved List for use with the Dangerous Substances (Conveyance by Road in Road Tankers and Tank Containers) Regulations 1981 (SI No.1059, CIS 82-1452). It lists those substances for which HSC has approved information which must be shown on hazard warning panels and compartment labels when those substances are conveyed by road. Part I lists the substances in alphabetical order together with their respective identification numbers, emergency action codes and classifications according to their characteristic properties as approved by HSC. Part II provides an explanation of the emergency action code, which forms part of the markings on the hazard warning panel. Part II lists the substances numerically according to the identification number. The information is based mainly on recommendations prepared by the UN Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods.
