Where a consignment is undeliverable, the consignment shall be placed in a safe location and the 
competent authority shall be informed as soon as possible and a request made for instructions on 
further action.
 
CV34    Prior to carriage of pressure receptacles it shall be ensured that the pressure has not 
risen     due to potential hydrogen generation.
 
CV35 If bags are used as single packagings, they shall be adequately separated to allow for the 
dissipation of heat.
 
CV36 Packages shall preferably be loaded in open or ventilated vehicles or open or ventilated 
containers. If this is not feasible and packages are carried in other closed vehicles or 
containers, the cargo doors of the vehicles or containers shall be marked with the following in 
letters not less than 25 mm high:
"WARNING NO VENTILATION
OPEN WITH CAUTION"
 
 
This shall be in a language considered appropriate by the consignor.
For UN Nos. 2211 and 3314 this mark is not required when the vehicle or container is already marked 
according to special provision 965 of the IMDG Code3.
CV37 Before loading, these by-products shall be cooled to ambient temperature, unless they have  
been calcined to remove moisture. Vehicles and containers containing bulk loads shall be adequately 
ventilated and protected against ingress of water throughout the journey. The cargo doors of the 
closed vehicles and closed containers shall be marked with the following in letters not less than 
25 mm high:
"WARNING
CLOSED MEANS OF CONTAINMENT OPEN WITH CAUTION"
This shall be in a language considered appropriate by the consignor.
 
 
3 Warning mark including the words “CAUTION – MAY CONTAIN FLAMMABLE VAPOUR” with lettering not
less than 25 mm high, affixed at each access point in a location where it will be easily seen by persons prior to opening
or entering the vehicle or container.
