BAM puts a new search tool for dangerous goods packagings on the web

27.09.2007
BAM makes it possible to search on-line for all dangerous goods packagings approved by BAM, including intermediate bulk containers (IBC) and large packagings manufactured in Germany or abroad.

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
Example of a fictitious UN marking of an approved steel drum (bunghole type) with the packaging type code 1A1, the fictitious approval number 4711 and the fictitious manufacturer identification code 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.

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
