    In India, the Ministry of Commerce has an autonomous Insitute called Indian Institute of Packaging, which is the only authorised body for providing the UN Certificate for transport of hazardous materials.
    We must encourage ‘safety’ as the first prerogative of shipping hazardous materials. Exporters should appreciate that they have to put human lives first before minor cost savings that will accrue due to non compliance.
    As we all know, wef January 1, 2010, the IMDG code has been made compulsory for all the UN signatory companies involved in export of hazardous goods by ship. Likewise for air, the ICAO guidelines/IATA Manual is compulsory for all the air transport operators of hazardous goods.

    “ As a norm, packaging materials depend upon the degree of danger of the product packed inside. Generally, Group-1 type of package is for materials having highest degree of danger, package group-2 for medium danger materials and group-3 for less danger ones. These packaging materials can be steel drum, plastic drums, jerry cans, cardboard boxes, flexible woven sacks, composite materials etc
    Do let us know your views on the above and also let me know if I can send any more India specific information
