accordance with 188.8.131.52.9".
When self-reactive substances type G (see Manual of Tests and Criteria, Part II, paragraph 20.4.2 (g))
are carried, the following statement may be given in the transport document: "Not a self-reactive
substance of Class 4.1".
When organic peroxides type G (see Manual of Tests and Criteria, Part II, paragraph 20.4.3 (g)) are
carried, the following statement may be given in the transport document: "Not a substance of Class
Additional provisions for Class 6.2
In addition to the information concerning the consignee (see 184.108.40.206.1 (h)), the name and telephone

Additional provisions for Class 7
The following information shall be inserted in the transport document for each consignment of Class 7
material, as applicable, in the order given and immediately after the information required under
220.127.116.11.1 (a) to (c) and (k):
(a) The name or symbol of each radionuclide or, for mixtures of radionuclides, an appropriate
general description or a list of the most restrictive nuclides;
(b) A description of the physical and chemical form of the material, or a notation that the material
is special form radioactive material or low dispersible radioactive material. A generic chemical
description is acceptable for chemical form. For radioactive material with a subsidiary risk, see
sub-paragraph (c) of special provision 172 of Chapter 3.3;
(c) The maximum activity of the radioactive contents during carriage expressed in becquerels (Bq)
with an appropriate SI prefix symbol (see 18.104.22.168). For fissile material, the mass of fissile
material (or mass of each fissile nuclide for mixtures when appropriate) in grams (g), or
appropriate multiples thereof, may be used in place of activity;
(d) The category of the package, i.e. I-WHITE, II-YELLOW, III-YELLOW;
(e) The transport index (categories II-YELLOW and III-YELLOW only);
(f) For fissile material:
(i) Shipped under one exception of 22.214.171.124.3.5 (a) to (f), reference to that paragraph;
(ii) Shipped under 126.96.36.199.3.5 (c) to (e), the total mass of fissile nuclides;
(iii) Contained in a package for which one of 188.8.131.52 (a) to (c) or 184.108.40.206 is applied,
reference to that paragraph;
(iv) The criticality safety index, where applicable;
(g) The identification mark for each competent authority certificate of approval (special form
radioactive material, low dispersible radioactive material, fissile material excepted under
220.127.116.11.3.5 (f), special arrangement, package design, or shipment) applicable to the
(h) For consignments of more than one package, the information required in 18.104.22.168.1 and in (a) to

"EXCLUSIVE USE SHIPMENT"; and
(j) For LSA-II and LSA-III substances, SCO-I and SCO-II, the total activity of the consignment as

A2 shall be zero.
The consignor shall provide in the transport documents a statement regarding actions, if any, that are
required to be taken by the carrier. The statement shall be in the languages deemed necessary by the
carrier or the authorities concerned, and shall include at least the following information:
