3.2

DANGEROUS GOODS LIST

Table A: Dangerous Goods List

Explanations
As a rule, each row of Table A of this Chapter deals with the substance(s) or article(s) covered by a
specific UN number. However, when substances or articles belonging to the same UN number have
different chemical properties, physical properties and/or carriage conditions, several consecutive rows
may be used for that UN number.
Each column of Table A is dedicated to a specific subject as indicated in the explanatory notes below. The
intersection of columns and rows (cell) contains information concerning the subject treated in that
column, for the substance(s) or article(s) of that row:
- The first four cells identify the substance(s) or article(s) belonging to that row (additional
information in that respect may be given by the special provisions referred to in Column (6);
- The following cells give the applicable special provisions, either in the form of complete
information or in coded form. The codes cross-refer to detailed information that is to be found in
the Part, Chapter, Section and/or Sub-section indicated in the explanatory notes below. An empty
cell means either that there is no special provision and that only the general requirements apply, or
that the carriage restriction indicated in the explanatory notes is in force. When used in this table,
an alphanumeric code starting with the letters "SP" designates a special provision of Chapter 3.3.
The applicable general requirements are not referred to in the corresponding cells. The explanatory
notes below indicate for every column the Part(s), Chapter(s), Section(s) and/or Sub-section(s) where
these are to be found.
Explanatory notes for each column:
Column (1) "UN No."
Contains the UN number:
- of the dangerous substance or article if the substance or article has been
assigned its own specific UN number; or
- of the generic or n.o.s. entry to which the dangerous substances or articles
not mentioned by name shall be assigned in accordance with the criteria
("decision trees") of Part 2.
Column (2) "Name and description"
Contains, in upper case characters, the name of the substance or article, if the
substance or article has been assigned its own specific UN number, or of the
generic or n.o.s. entry to which it has been assigned in accordance with the
criteria ("decision trees") of Part 2. This name shall be used as the proper
shipping name or, when applicable, as part of the proper shipping name
(see 3.1.2 for further details on the proper shipping name).
A descriptive text in lower case characters is added after the proper shipping
name to clarify the scope of the entry if the classification and/or carriage
conditions of the substance or article may be different under certain conditions.

has been drained and the vehicle cannot be operated due to a lack of fuel. Vehicle
components such as fuel lines, fuel filters and injectors do not need to be cleaned,
drained or purged to be considered empty of liquid fuels. In addition, the liquid fuel
tank does not need to be cleaned or purged.
NOTE 2: A vehicle is considered to be empty of gaseous fuels when the gaseous fuel
tanks are empty of liquid (for liquefied gases), the pressure in the tanks does not exceed

cells or batteries or lithium cells or batteries of a small production run, consisting of not
more than 100 cells or batteries, are installed in the vehicle, engine or machinery;
(b) The requirements of 2.2.9.1.7 do not apply to lithium cells or batteries in damaged or
defective vehicles, engine or machinery. In such cases the following conditions shall be
met:

battery, damaged and defective vehicles, engines or machinery, may be carried
under the conditions defined in special provisions 363 or 666, as appropriate;
(ii) If the damage or defect has a significant impact on the safety of the cell or
battery, the lithium cell or battery shall be removed and carried according to
special provision 376.
However if it is not possible to safely remove the cell or battery or it is not possible to
verify the status of the cell or battery, the vehicle, engine or machinery may be towed or
carried as specified in (i).
