Requirements for tanks which are designed, constructed and tested according to referenced standards

NOTE: Persons or bodies identified in standards as having responsibilities in accordance with ADR
shall meet the requirements of ADR.

Design and construction

Type approval certificates shall be issued in accordance with 1.8.7 or 6.8.2.3. The standards
referenced in the table below shall be applied for the issue of type approvals as indicated in column
(4) to meet the requirements of Chapter 6.8 referred to in column (3). The standards shall be applied in
accordance with 1.1.5. Column (5) gives the latest date when existing type approvals shall be
withdrawn according to 1.8.7.2.4 or 6.8.2.3.3; if no date is shown the type approval remains valid
until it expires.
Since 1 January 2009 the use of the referenced standards has been mandatory. Exceptions are dealt
with in 6.8.2.7 and 6.8.3.7.
If more than one standard is referenced for the application of the same requirements, only one of them
shall be applied, but in full unless otherwise specified in the table below.
The scope of application of each standard is defined in the scope clause of the standard unless
otherwise specified in the Table below.

Requirements for tanks which are not designed, constructed and tested according to referenced standards

To reflect scientific and technical progress or where no standard is referenced in 6.8.2.6 or to deal
with specific aspects not addressed in a standard referenced in 6.8.2.6, the competent authority may
recognize the use of a technical code providing the same level of safety. Tanks shall, however, comply
with the minimum requirements of 6.8.2.
The competent authority shall transmit to the secretariat of UNECE a list of the technical codes that it
recognises. The list should include the following details: name and date of the code, purpose of the
code and details of where it may be obtained. The secretariat shall make this information publicly
available on its website.
A standard which has been adopted for reference in a future edition of the ADR may be approved by
the competent authority for use without notifying the UNECE secretariat.
For testing, inspection and marking, the applicable standard referenced in 6.8.2.6 may also be used.

Special requirements applicable to Class 2

Construction of shells

Shells intended for the carriage of compressed or liquefied gases or dissolved gases shall be made of
steel. In the case of weldless shells, by derogation from 6.8.2.1.12 a minimum elongation at fracture of
14% and also a stress σ lower than or equal to limits hereafter given according to the material may be
accepted:
(a) When the ratio Re/Rm (of the minimum guaranteed characteristics after heat treatment) is
higher than 0.66 without exceeding 0.85:
σ ≤ 0.75 Re;
(b) When the ratio Re/Rm (of the minimum guaranteed characteristics after heat treatment) is
higher than 0.85:
σ ≤ 0.5 Rm.

The requirements of 6.8.5 apply to the materials and construction of welded shells.

(Reserved)
Construction of battery-vehicles and MEGCs

Cylinders, tubes, pressure drums and bundles of cylinders, as elements of a battery-vehicle or MEGC,
shall be constructed in accordance with Chapter 6.2.
NOTE 1: Bundles of cylinders which are not elements of a battery-vehicle or of a MEGC shall be
subject to the requirements of Chapter 6.2.
NOTE 2: Tanks as elements of battery-vehicles and MEGCs shall be constructed in accordance with
6.8.2.1 and 6.8.3.1.
NOTE 3: Demountable tanks14 are not to be considered elements of battery-vehicles or MEGCs.

Elements and their fastenings

of battery vehicles and the frame of MEGCs
 
Under each force the stress at the most severely stressed point of the element and its fastenings shall
not exceed the value defined in 6.2.5.3 for cylinders, tubes, pressure drums and bundles of cylinders
and for tanks the value of σ defined in 6.8.2.1.16.

Items of equipment

The discharge pipes of tanks shall be capable of being closed by blank flanges or some other equally
reliable device. For tanks intended for the carriage of refrigerated liquefied gases, these blank flanges
or other equally reliable devices may be fitted with pressure-release openings of a maximum diameter
of 1.5 mm.

Shells intended for the carriage of liquefied gases may be provided with, in addition to the openings
prescribed in 6.8.2.2.2 and 6.8.2.2.4, openings for the fitting of gauges, thermometers, manometers
and with bleed holes, as required for their operation and safety.

The internal stop-valve of all filling and all discharge openings of tanks

                                                          with a capacity greater than 1 m3
 
intended for the carriage of liquefied flammable or toxic gases shall be instant-closing and shall close
automatically in the event of an unintended movement of the tank or in the event of fire. It shall also
be possible to operate the internal stop-valve by remote control.
 
However on tanks intended for the carriage of
liquefied non-toxic flammable gases, the
internal stop-valve with remote control may be
replaced by a non-return valve for filling
openings into the vapour phase of the tank
only. The non-return valve shall be positioned
internally in the tank, be spring loaded so that
the valve is closed if the pressure in the filling
line is equal to or lower than the pressure in
the tank and be equipped with appropriate
sealing15.
