The search tool enables
- national and international users of dangerous goods packagings to quickly find packagings approved by BAM for their own special purposes and to quickly establish contact with the manufacturers,
- enforcement authorities, e.g. police, or inspection authorities to look up information for the use of specific packagings in searchable certificates of approval,
- transparency in the sensitive field of the transport of dangerous goods for all groups involved.
You can search for approvals, manufacturers and approval holders by packaging type codes, approval numbers or manufacturer identification codes. It is also possible to search for manufacturers of dangerous goods packagings, limited locally to countries or cities. The search results can be printed out as lists.UN - 1A1/Y1.4/150/02/D/BAM 4711-XY
An extension of the search tool is under construction incorporating further search criteria such as technical characteristics (e.g. size, capacity) or performance characteristics (e.g. suitability for very dangerous, dangerous or less dangerous goods) as given in the middle section of the UN marking indicated above.
The search tool has been developed in co-operation with the FHTW Berlin - University of Applied Sciences.
The Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) is the competent authority in Germany for testing, approval and manufacturing controls of packagings for the transport of dangerous goods on road, rail, sea and air mode. Packagings manufactured according to these approvals may be used world-wide.Information: Dr. rer. nat. Peter Blümel

Physicists from the University of Würzburg have designed a light source that emits photon pairs. Two-photon sources are particularly well suited for tap-proof data encryption. The experiment's key ingredients: a semiconductor crystal and some sticky tape.
So-called monolayers are at the heart of the research activities. These "super materials" (as the prestigious science magazine "Nature" puts it) have been...
Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...
Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion
Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
