Classification of dangerous goods is broken down into nine classes according to the type of danger materials or items present:  Click

Class 1. Explosives

CLASS 1 (EXPLOSIVES) DANGEROUS GOODS TRANSPORTATION

Class 1 Dangerous Goods – Explosives

Dangerous Goods which are classed as Explosives are materials or items which have the ability to rapidly conflagration or detonate as a consequence of chemical reaction.

Sub-Divisions

1.1: Substances and articles which have a mass explosion hazard.

1.2: Substances and articles which have a projection hazard but not a mass explosion hazard.

1.3: Substances and articles which have a fire hazard and either a minor blast hazard or a minor projection hazard or both.

1.4: Substances and articles which present no significant hazard; only a small hazard in the event of ignition or initiation during transport with any effects largely confined to the package.

1.5: Very insensitive substances which have a mass explosion hazard.

1.6: Extremely insensitive articles which do not have a mass explosion hazard.

Reason For Regulation

Explosives are capable by chemical reaction of producing gases at temperatures, pressures and speeds as to cause catastrophic damage through force and/or of producing otherwise hazardous amounts of heat, light, sound, gas or smoke.

Class 4. Flammable Solids

Class 4 Dangerous Goods – Flammable Solids; Substances Liable To Spontaneous Combustion; Substances Which Emit Flammable Gases When In Contact With Water

Dangerous Goods which are classed as Flammable Solids are materials which, under conditions encountered in transport, are readily combustible or may cause or contribute to fire through friction, self-reactive substances which are liable to undergo a strongly exothermic reaction or solid desensitised explosives.

Also included are substances which are liable to spontaneous heating under normal transport conditions, or to heating up in contact with air, and are consequently liable to catch fire and substances which emit flammable gases or become spontaneously flammable when in contact with water.

Sub-Divisions

4.1: Flammable solids.

4.2: Substances liable to spontaneous combustion.

4.3: Substances which, in contact with water, emit flammable gases.

Reason For Regulation

Class 5 Oxidizing Substances

Class 5 Dangerous Goods – Oxidizing Substances; Organic Peroxides

Oxidizers are defined by dangerous goods regulations as substances which may cause or contribute to combustion, generally by yielding oxygen as a result of a redox chemical reaction. Organic peroxides are substances which may be considered derivatives of hydrogen peroxide where one or both hydrogen atoms of the chemical structure have been replaced by organic radicals.

Sub-Divisions

5.1: Oxidizing substances

5.2: Organic peroxides

Reason For Regulation

Oxidizers, although not necessarily combustible in themselves, can yield oxygen and in so doing cause or contribute to the combustion of other materials. Organic peroxides are thermally unstable and may exude heat whilst undergoing exothermic autocatalytic decomposition. Additionally, organic peroxides may be liable to explosive decomposition, burn rapidly, be sensitive to impact or friction, react dangerously with other substances or cause damage to eyes.

A radionuclide is an atom with an unstable nucleus and which consequently is subject to radioactive decay.

Sub-Divisions

Reason For Regulation

Whilst undergoing radioactive decay radionuclides emit ionizing radiation, which presents potentially severe risks to human health.
