UN Standard Packagings Performance testing requirements for all packaging designs are contained in Part 178. Packagings tested to meet the Part 178 performance requirements are called “UN Standard Packagings.” Section 171.8 defines “UN standard packaging” as a packaging conforming to standards in the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods. Standards Every UN standard packaging must be marked with the appropriate United Nations certification mark, which contains the ID code letters and number(s) preceded by the UN symbol. In addition, the specification packaging must be marked with a letter to indicate the packing group performance level. For example: “X” performs to the level of PG I, and may also be used for PG II and III; “Y” performs to the level of PG II, and may also be used for PG III; and “Z” performs to the level of PG III, and may not be used for any other packing group. The specification packaging must also be marked with a number designating the specific gravity for liquids or maximum gross mass (in kilograms) for solids of the tested packaging design. UN standard packagings, such as intermediate bulk containers (IBCs,) can be built and tested to a variety of performance levels and capacities. It is very important that the UN standard you select is authorized for the packing group of the material you want to ship. The package must be tested for the specific gravity or mass for the hazardous material being shipped.

Activity: Think It Through Using the scenario provided and the information in this module, determine the Packing Group Scenario: You are shipping 29 kilograms of Acetaldehyde ammonia. According to section 172.101 of the HMT the packaging requirement is PGIII. You have found a fiberboard box that has been tested to Packing Group II performance requirements. The box is marked 4G/Y29, indicating a UN specification 4G. Question: Can you ship this hazardous chemical in the fiberboard 4G/Y29 container?
11 | P a g e Hazardous Materials Regulations 5.0 Packaging Student Workbook Package Marking Requirements All UN non-bulk packagings are required to be marked in a method similar to that shown here in the graphic. The marking must include the following: The hydrostatic test pressure for single and composite packagings intended for liquids, or the letter “S” for packagings intended for solids or inner packagings. The last two digits of the year of manufacture; the state or country authorizing allocation of the mark. The name and address or registered symbol of the manufacturer or approval agency certifying compliance with Part 178. Packaging Requirements The HMR prescribes general packaging requirements for all hazardous materials, while certain hazardous materials must meet additional specific packaging requirements. General packaging requirements: address package design, construction and content limitations. These
