Stringent requirements for dangerous goods packaging
When shipping dangerous goods onshore, by sea or by air, the top priority is ensuring the safety of people, animals and the environment. The packaging used for dangerous goods must, therefore, meet particularly high standards. According to the UN Dangerous Goods Regulations plastic packaging for dangerous goods must withstand falls, squashing and exposure to aggressive chemicals. In addition, UN approved dangerous goods packaging has to meet impermeability requirements as well as display certain properties under high and low temperature conditions.
Dangerous goods are divided into three packaging groups I, II and III. Accordingly, dangerous goods packaging also falls into the three groups X, Y, and Z. Which packaging is approved for which dangerous goods is determined by a special testing procedure that is carried out by an authorized testing agency. Since 1991 the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (or in German: Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung, abbreviated as BAM) has been carrying out UN certification of dangerous goods packaging.
If after a profound testing by the BAM a dangerous goods packaging fulfils the requirements it receives a UN approval number and a certificate of approval that can be used to establish material compatibility, for example. The UN certificate of approval contains all relevant information and is internationally recognised.

Developing customer solutions, LINDNER SPRÜHSYSTEME takes into consideration both customer’s requirements for dangerous goods packaging and the UN Dangerous Goods Regulations. The manufactured packaging must then be tested and certified by the BAM. A packaging has to be certified as a whole (e.g. as a combination of a bottle and a closure).
