United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods. Model Regulations
The 22nd Revised Edition of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, also known as the Orange Book, has been developed by the United Nations Economic and Social Council’s Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods in 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 organizations concerned with the regulation of the transport of dangerous goods.
They do not apply to the bulk transport of dangerous goods in sea-going or inland navigation bulk carriers or tank-vessels, which is subject to special international or national regulations.
