ADR UN1263 – limits?

It’s all paint, resin, varnish etc. The flash point determines the Transport Category and the Transport Category determines how much you can carry with just ‘awareness’ training.

Without ‘awareness’ and access to a DGSA you can’t carry any quantity at all UNLESS it’s packed in LQ packages – and paint etc is often (but by no means always) packed in LQ packages. The shipper should be able to tell you. If it’s in LQ packages then it’s outside the scope of ADR and you can carry what you want; in the UK anyway.

    If you’ve not got awareness training then you can’t carry any of it unless it’s in LQ packages. It’s up to the shipper to determine what’s LQ and what’s not. A ‘tub’ can never be LQ. 2 tubs in an outer box may be but probably not in the quantities you’re talking about.

    I think the golden rule is that if you don’t know what you can carry then you’re probably not qualified to carry it.
