    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies the requirements that are particularly applicable to road tankers for the transport of liquids that are toxic or corrosive or both. The requirements are complementary to those general requirements necessary to comply with AS 2809.1-1999.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for the design and construction of tankers for the transport of cargo which is normally liquid, and which is toxic or corrosive. It is complementary to AS 2809.1.NOTE: Five alternative types of cargo tanks are described. The ADG Code will specify which of them must be used for a particular cargo. Where it is desired to transport a product not listed in the ADG Code, the Authority should be consulted. Regulations may forbid the transport of certain dangerous goods in bulk, or may limit the quantity, or may require specific approval beforehand.
