Vaxtor ADR App - Structure of Dangerous Goods Plates

In this article we describe the structure of dangerous goods plates according to United Nations “Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road”

  1. The upper line, called hazard number (a.k.a. Kemler Code), describes the danger, which emanates from the transported dangerous goods (33 = highly flammable liquid substance (flash point below 23 °C))
  2. The lower line, called UN number specifies the composition (type) of the transported goods (1203 = gasoline)
