About the book
Known as the Orange Book, this directory provides an extensive list of dangerous goods and their control in transport by air, rail, road, sea and inland waterways. It covers classification and definitions of all dangerous substances; packaging, labeling and relevant shipping documentation; and training of transport workers. This manual is indispensable to national and international regulatory authorities, lawyers, manufacturers, shippers and packers concerned with the regulations imposed by the different governments and international organizations regarding the transport of dangerous goods. This fourteenth revised edition of the Recommendations takes account of all amendments which were adopted in December 2004.
