Marking of loading units
Hier finden Sie Beispiele zu den verschiedenen Kennzeichnungsvorschriften bei Gefahrgut- und Abfalltransporten.
Swap bodies used in combined transport (but also in the initial and final leg to the rail unloading terminal) must have the prescribed placards (25x25 cm) on all four sides.
Marking of a containerLike a swap body, the container also has placards on all four sides. Also the sign for environmentally hazardous substance has to appear on all four sides.
Marking of a tankcontainer
Tankcontainers in combined transport must have
|If the individual chambers contain different substances, each chamber must have an orange label as well as the necessary placard. The placards at both ends must correspond to the placards on the sides.|
Marking of a semitrailerA semitrailer in combined transport does not normally have any placards, but the wagon will have the corresponding placard. The orange label affixed for the initial road leg is required for the rear (22.214.171.124.1 ADR).
Bulk transportationIf goods are transported in bulk in loading units (swap bodies, containers or semitrailers), the loading unit is marked with an orange label on both long sides in addition to the placards. As with the tank container, the danger code and the UN number must be affixed (126.96.36.199.4 ADR).
Marking of a container for transport by seaIn maritime transport the container also has placards on all four sides. If it contains only one type of hazardous goods and this weighs more than four tonnes, however, the UN number of this material must be shown on all four sides. This number can be indicated on an orange label or on a white background in the placard
Marking of a tank container for transport by seaIn maritime transport, as in overland transport, the tank container has placards on all four sides. The UN number must also be affixed on all four sides, either in the placard itself or on a orange label (like the container). If the chambers contain different substances, the UN number must not be affixed to the end of the tank container.
Marking of a semitrailer for transport by seaIn maritime transport there is a general requirement for “marking”. This includes semitrailers, which means that these also must have placards on all four sides. In these cases, of course, the wagon will not have a placard. The semitrailer shown also has a marking for “Marine Pollutant” substances, the 'fish and tree' sign.
Limited quantities in maritime transportIn contrast to overland transport, in which marks for limited quantities has to appear only when containing more then 8 tons, loading units in maritime transport must allways be marked on all four sides with the text “LTD QTY” or the words “LIMITED QUANTITIES”. They can also be marked with the new sign for limited quantities, like in this picture:
Marking in GermanyIn Germany, loading units in combined transport do not need special marking when moving by rail. If the loading unit contains hazardous goods, it must be marked in accordance with ADR/RID. On the initial and final leg by road to the terminal, the loading unit must display a white sign (30 x 40 cm) on which there is a black “A” for “Abfall” (i.e. waste - see § 10 AbfVerbrG, the German regulations governing the transportation of waste). The “A” must remain on the loading unit during rail transportation. For international transport, however, the carrier must check whether there are contrary marking rules in the receiving country (e.g. in Italy the “A” is understood to mean “Alimantari”, i.e. food).
Marking in ItalyIn Italy, loading units with waste must be marked with a yellow label (25 x 25 cm) on which there is a black “R”. This applies explicitly for rail transport as well.
