Amended German translation of the Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods

05.02.2015

Amended German translation of the Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods has been published (BAM-Press Release No. 1/2015)

The corrected and revised 2015 version of the German translation of the Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods – Manual of Tests and Criteria – 5th revised edition, New York and Geneva 2009, prepared by the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) is now available.

It can be downloaded as a pdf file from the BAM website from the address http://www.bam.de/de/service/publikationen/handbuecher.htm free of charge.

The revised and expanded 2015 German translation contains additions and changes according to Amendment 1 and Amendment 2 such as changes in Test Series 7 and 8 and Test Series H, changes in the test methods required for the classification of desensitized liquid explosives and Class 3 flammable liquid substances, a new test method for oxidizing solids and changes in the T6 test for lithium batteries.

This revision, legally enacted on 1 January 2015 by referring to the regulations for the Transport of Dangerous Goods via different modes of Transport: ADR 2015, RID 2015 and ADN 2015 for the European road, rail and inland waterway transport with a transitional period of six months, the IMDG Code Amendment 37-14 for sea transport with a one-year toleration period and ICAO -TI 2015-2016 for aviation without a transition period.

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

Im Focus: Coping with errors in the quantum age

Physicists at ETH Zurich demonstrate how errors that occur during the manipulation of quantum system can be monitored and corrected on the fly

The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...
