a For UN Nos. 0081, 0082, 0084, 0241, 0331, 0332, 0482, 1005 and 1017, the total maximum quantity per transport unit shall be 50 kg.
b The maximum total quantity for each transport category corresponds to a calculated value of “1000” (see also 184.108.40.206.4).
In the above table, "maximum total quantity per transport unit" means:
Where dangerous goods of different transport categories are carried in the same transport unit, the sum of:
- The quantity of substances and articles of transport category 1 multiplied by "50";
- The quantity of substances and articles of transport category 1 referred to in Note a to the table in 220.127.116.11.3 multiplied by "20";
- The quantity of substances and articles of transport category 2 multiplied by "3"; and
- The quantity of substances and articles of transport category 3; shall not exceed a calculated value of "1 000".
For the purposes of this sub-section, dangerous goods exempted in accordance with 18.104.22.168 (a), (b) and (d) to (f), 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 shall not be taken into account.
The provisions laid down in ADR do not apply to electric energy storage and production systems (e.g., lithium batteries, electric capacitors, asymmetric capacitors, metal hydride storage systems and fuel cells):
(a) installed in a vehicle, performing a transport operation and destined for its propulsion or for the operation of any of its equipment;
(b) contained in equipment for the operation of this equipment used or intended for use during carriage (e.g. a laptop).
When used in vehicles or containers for cooling or conditioning purposes, dangerous goods that are only asphyxiant (which dilute or replace the oxygen normally in the atmosphere) are only subject to the provisions of section 5.5.3.
The following lamps are not subject to ADR provided that they do not contain radioactive material and do not contain mercury in quantities above those specified in special provision 366 of Chapter 3.3:
(a) Lamps that are collected directly from individuals and households when carried to a collection or recycling facility;
NOTE: This also includes lamps brought by individuals to a first collection point, and then carried to another collection point, intermediate processing or recycling facility.
(b) Lamps each containing not more than 1 g of dangerous goods and packaged so that there is not more than 30 g of dangerous goods per package, provided that:
(i) the lamps are manufactured according to a certified quality management system;
NOTE: ISO 9001 may be used for this purpose.
(ii) each lamp is either individually packed in inner packagings, separated by dividers, or surrounded with cushioning material to protect the lamps and packed into strong outer packagings meeting the general provisions of 18.104.22.168 and capable of passing a 1.2 m drop test;
(c) Used, damaged or defective lamps each containing not more than 1 g of dangerous goods with not more than 30 g of dangerous goods per package when carried from a collection or recycling facility. The lamps shall be packed in strong outer packagings sufficient for preventing release of the contents under normal conditions of carriage meeting the general provisions of 22.214.171.124 and that are capable of passing a drop test of not less than 1.2 m;
(d) Lamps containing only gases of Groups A and O (according to 126.96.36.199) provided they are packaged so that the projectile effects of any rupture of the lamp will be contained within the package.
NOTE: Lamps containing radioactive material are addressed in 188.8.131.52.2.2 (b).
Packages, containers, bulk-containers, portable tanks, tank-containers and MEGCs, which do not entirely meet the requirements for packing, mixed packing, marking, labelling of packages or placarding and orange plate marking, of ADR, but are in conformity with the requirements of the IMDG Code or the ICAO Technical Instructions shall be accepted for carriage in a transport chain including maritime or air carriage subject to the following conditions:
(a) If the packages are not marked and labelled in accordance with ADR, they shall bear marks and danger labels in accordance with the requirements of the IMDG Code or the ICAO Technical Instructions;
(b) The requirements of the IMDG Code or the ICAO Technical Instructions shall be applicable to mixed packing within a package;
(c) For carriage in a transport chain including maritime carriage, if the containers, bulk-containers, portable tanks, tank-containers or MEGCs are not marked and placarded in accordance with Chapter 5.3 of this Annex, they shall be marked and placarded in accordance with Chapter 5.3 of the IMDG Code. In such case, only 184.108.40.206.1 of this Annex is applicable to the marking of the vehicle itself. For empty, uncleaned portable tanks, tank-containers and MEGCs, this requirement shall apply up to and including the subsequent transfer to a cleaning station.
This derogation does not apply in the case of goods classified as dangerous goods in classes 1 to 9 of ADR and considered as non-dangerous goods according to the applicable requirements of the IMDG Code or the ICAO Technical Instructions.
Transport units composed of a vehicle or vehicles other than those carrying containers, portable tanks, tank-containers or MEGCs as provided for in 220.127.116.11.1 (c), which are not placarded in accordance with the provisions of 5.3.1 of ADR but which are marked and placarded in accordance with Chapter
5.3 of the IMDG Code, shall be accepted for carriage in a transport chain including maritime transport provided that the orange-coloured plate marking provisions of 5.3.2 of ADR are complied with.
