Global harmonized system (ghs)

Global harmonised system (ghs) of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals


Global harmonized system

• Global harmonized system is a

U.N. body

Recognized as the internationally harmonized approach to classification and labelling of chemicals -Information about the status of implementation of the GHS is available at: http://www.unece.org/trans/danger/publi/ghs/implementation_e.html


Transport of dangerous goods – PCBs waste GHS implementation of Transport of dangerous goods

GHS is implemented in transport of dangerous goods sector through the UN Model Regulations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods and its related legal instruments: – IMDG code(maritime transport) – ICAO Technical Instructions ( air transport) – ADR (road transport) ? – RID (rail transport) – AD N (inland waterways transport) In the European Union: EU: Directive 2008/68/EC on inland transport of dangerous goods Question to application of ADR on HAZARDOUS WASTE as PCBs in Albania


Transport of dangerous goods – PCBs waste The classes of dangerous goods according to ADR are the following: Class 1 Explosive substances and articles Class 2 Gases Class 3 Flammable liquids Class 4.1 Flammable solids, self-reactive substances and solid desensitized explosives Class 4.2 Substances liable to spontaneous combustion Class 4.3 Substances which, in contact with water, emit flammable gases Class 5.1 Oxidizing substances Class 5.2 Organic peroxides Class 6.1 Toxic substances Class 6.2 Infectious substances Class 7 Radioactive material Class 8 Corrosive substances Class 9 Miscellaneous dangerous substances and articles Each entry in the different classes has been assigned a UN number.

Transport of dangerous goods – PCBs waste

GHS implementation on Transport of PCBs waste for combined transport as road and sea GHS of PCBs we should follow the requirements of: – IMDG code(maritime transport) & – ADR (road transport) collecting the -technical names -proper packing -proper labeling -other related to transport information's


ADR & IMDG code guidance

Goal to collect required standard from ADR & IMDG code

1. Classify dangerous goods and identify Proper Shipping Names of dangerous goods; 2. Pack dangerous goods; 3. Mark, label or placard dangerous goods; 4. Load/unload Cargo Transport Units; 5. Prepare transport documents for dangerous goods; 6. Prepare dangerous goods loading/stowage plans; 7 Request to a shipping company to accept for carrying the hazardous cargo


TECHNICAL NAMES of PCBs in ADR & IMDG

Search and find Master pages for PCB’s pages 424 and 425 POLYCHLORINATED BIPHENYLS LIQUID and

Pages 538 and 539 POLYCHLORINATED BIPHENYLS SOLID and then Print those 4 pages.
