Salam to all forumers,

actually I want to seek an opinion from anyone who is familiar with the above topic. Let's say we want to fix the hazchem plate at the back of the lorry, how big is the size of hazchem plate. Is there any guideline pertaining to the size of hazchem plate. If anyone has some info, please share it.

TQ

May Allah bless U.

Hi all,

From my experience handling transportation of DG cargo, we 100% following Singapore regulation which is more systematic for us.
Normally tucks's DG signage size is 26cm x 26cm, anyway
You can get the information from http://www.scdf.gov.sg or get the 'Guidebook on Transport & Handling of Dangerous Goods' from Singapore Chemical Industry Council.
It may can help u.

Salam to all,

yes it is true DG transportation in Malaysia not really emphasized by the authorities. Only O & G transport company focus on this.

For Air shipment, yes we strictly comply with IATA , they call it DGR= Dangerous Goods Regulation and for sea shipment need to follow IMO, normally people we refer to IMDG.

Anyway thanks for sharing. Actually I am the appointed DG representative for Malaysia operation in my company. The reason I asked was because I am not familiar with malaysia regulations, I am more exposed to Europe practices. If you need some info on DG , feel free to drop a line.
