Why must dangerous goods packaging be certificated?
Transportation Safety is dependent on shipping a dangerous good in the correct packaging. If you choose the wrong packaging, you could severely injure a transportation worker, harm the environment, or cause catastrophic damage.
Packing functions for dangerous goods have to be certified because it has to comply with dangerous goods packaging regulations. Organizations such as the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and Dangerous Goods Regulation (DGR) have examined and adjusted their restrictions on transport and packaging thoroughly after an increasing amount of incidents that occurred with lithium-ion batteries, for instance.
The most feasible way to select dangerous goods packaging is to choose packaging that has already been certified, which means it is approved for the product you’re shipping. Tritek as a senior LEV battery pack manufacturer, we have applied the UN package for different products in these years, for example, 36V electric bike battery, 48V electric MTB battery, and 60V electric motorcycle battery. So it’s beneficial for us to do an inspection certificate for packing functions of LEV battery packs leaving the country. Now let us explain what the certification process of dangerous goods packaging is.
With the certification of the results of the packaging of dangerous goods exported, it can be shown that the packaging of dangerous goods meets the packing requirements. You can use this certificate, together with the results of the inspection of the packaging performance of exported dangerous goods, and the packaging technical manual, to declare the export of dangerous goods to the maritime department.
Relevant documents required for handling dangerous packages
1. Outbound dangerous goods packaging performance inspection result sheet (commonly called performance sheet), provided by the dangerous goods packaging production factory.
2. IMI classification appraisal report. Provide 20-50 grams of samples to the relevant appraisal agencies for reporting.
3. Chinese MSDS
4. Factory inspection form
5. Certificate of conformity (self-inspection result sheet)
After the above documents are prepared, you can apply to customs for inspection and apply for a dangerous package permit. 3-5 working days after acceptance by the customs, customs officers will come to check whether the packaging conforms to the application information provided and whether the relevant single goods comply. After inspection, there is no problem and the result report of the packaging and use of dangerous goods is issued. The whole process is done!
Is any misunderstanding about the Inspection Certificate for Packing Functions of outbound dangerous goods?
- UN-package is not a dangerous goods package. UN-package can continuously be used for a few years as long as individual and outer packing don’t change.
- However, the effective duration of the dangerous goods package is only 1 year. The certificate should be applied again after a year.
- After you get the results of the packaging of dangerous goods exported, you need to apply to your local customs for inspection on-site. You can apply customs inspection of the same model goods per three months OR be inspected on-site by customs for each shipment.
Since the year of 2021, Chinese customs have enhanced measurements of dangerous goods exported to ensure transportation safety. You can read in deeply from this government link: http://www.customs.gov.cn//customs/302249/302266/302267/3476363/index.html
