    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out requirements and recommendations for the safe storage and handling of Class 4 dangerous goods as classified in the ADG Code, for Australia, and the HNSO Act, for New Zealand.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Standard sets out requirements and recommendations for the safe storage and handling of flammable solids, substances liable to spontaneous combustion, and substances that in contact with water emit flammable gases, i.e. dangerous goods that-(a) in Australia, are classified as Division 4.1, 4.2 or 4.3 in the Australian Dangerous Goods Code (ADG Code); and(b) in New Zealand, meet the 4.1, 4.2 or 4.3 classification criteria of the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act, 1996, referred to as 'the HSNO Act'.The Standard also applies to other dangerous goods that are assigned Division 4.1, 4.2 or 4.3 subsidiary risks by the ADG Code, except where more stringent requirements apply under another relevant Standard or regulation.NOTES:1 In Australia, this Standard is not intended to apply to consumer products and commercial cleaning products that are flammable liquid soaked solids or flammable liquid containing solids. 2 Dangerous goods are classified as such and listed in the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods-Model Regulations. They are also listed in the ADG Code and HSNO Act.3 Information on the hazards presented by Class 4 dangerous goods is provided in Appendix A.
