The NTC provides access to a number of resources to help you comply with the Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road & Rail. These resources include the Australian Emergency Response Guide (AERG 2018), a template Concessional Limited Quantities Transport document and Class labels.
Concessional Limited Quantities template
This template is a Generic transport document for carrying concessional limited quantities (CLQ) loads that comply with all requirements of the chapter 3.4.10 of the Code.
Class labels for dangerous goods based on UN Model Regulations are available to download below:
How to use:
- The names of the individual label files match the label ‘Model Numbers’ in the Australian Dangerous Goods Code.
- The labels are fully scalable Windows Metafiles that can be inserted into Word documents in the same way as other images.
- The quality of label produced will depend on your printer. On some printers, the text may not properly align in the label.
- The class labels were drawn to the largest size that will fit on an A4 page. When scaled to 100 per cent, they will produce a label with sides measuring approximately 147 mm, which fits no particular code requirement.
- To get a 100 mm square label, they need to be scaled to 68 per cent.
- For a 250 mm placard, scale to 170 per cent.
- When printing the lithium battery mark, ensure the rectangle is 120mm wide and 110mm high (roughly 60% scale).
