What is classed as Hazardous?

Ask your insurance company to define Hazardous. It used to be easy before ADR came along – if goods weren’t over the thresholds then they weren’t legally ‘hazardous’ (or was it ‘dangerous’ – I forget) so you could carry them in your vehicle without any extra insurance requirements but now there’s no definition of hazardous. Goods are either Limited Quantity packages (not covered under ADR but still actually hazardous), Small Loads – under the thresholds but still subject to the minimum requirements of ADR, or full ADR.

I suspect that most insurance companies will decide that you’re not covered even for LQ packages unless you pay extra.
