Abstract This revised list (see CIS 90-716 for previous edition) is for use with the Road Traffic (Carriage of Dangerous Substances in Road Tankers and Tank Containers) Regulations 1992. It lists those substances for which the Health and Safety Commission 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. Part II explains the emergency action code. Part III lists the substances numerically by identification number. The information is based mainly on recommendations prepared by the UN Expert Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods.
