Dangerous goods center extended by transport and hazard potential status

Dangerous goods center extended by transport and hazard potential status

Expansion of the dangerous goods centre

After we have already extended the WinSped module dangerous goods center (GGC) last year with access to the dangerous goods database of the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM), the application now trumps with two further valuable functions: From now on, the application also displays the transport status defined in the “European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road” (ADR) and the classification of the hazard potential of the goods to be transported. “With the extension of the Dangerous Goods Centre, the user can not only easily find out the UN number, but also receives information on whether and under which conditions the substance constitutes dangerous goods according to current regulations – and whether it may be transported generally – as well as the binding BAM notice on goods with a high hazard potential”, explains our responsible product expert Thomas Meyer. The module is updated on request as part of regular maintenance. LIS customers incur no costs for this.

Function 1: Transport status

The options for recording dangerous goods in the GGC have been extended by the field “Transport status”. From now on, the classification of dangerous goods as defined in the ADR and their special transport guidelines are stored there. The substances can fall under the following categories:

– “This substance is classified”

– “No carriage allowed”

– “Not subject to this regulation”

– “Classification not known for this regulation”

Function 2: Potential danger

The new “danger potential” field shows the user at a glance which dangerous goods pose a particularly high risk. The basis for this is also data that BAM provides in WinSped.

A distinction is made between the following three levels:

0) “no high danger potential”.

1) “high risk potential” means

(2) ‘high hazard potential (radioactive material)’
