These recommendations have been developed in the light of technical progress, the advent of new substances and materials, the exigencies of modern transport systems and, above all, the requirement to ensure the safety of people, property and the environment. They are addressed to governments and international organisations concerned with the regulation of the transport of dangerous goods. The Model Regulations cover the classification of dangerous goods, their listing, the use, construction, testing and approval of packagings and portable tanks, as well as consignment procedures such as marking, labelling, placarding and documentation. This seventeenth revised edition contains various new and revised provisions concerning, inter alia, chemicals under pressure, electric double layer capacitors, mercury contained in manufactured articles, dangerous goods used as a coolant or conditioner, flexible bulk containers, salvage pressure receptacles, lithium batteries, dangerous goods packed in limited quantities, dangerous goods packed in minute quantities and packing instructions.
