New regulations for environmentally hazardous dangerous goods UN 3077 and UN 3082
These substances when carried in single or combination packagings containing net quantity per single or inner packaging of 5 l or less for liquids or having a net mass per single or inner packaging og 5 kg or less for solids are not subject to any other provisions of the dangerous goods regulations (ADR, RID, ADN, IMDG-Code, IATA-DGR) provided the packagings meet the general provisions (like limited quantities).
This means: No marking, no labelling, no transport document.
Attention: According to CLP you have to mark the dangerous substances at the outside of the packackings, because you will not have markings or labellings in accordance ti the transport regulations.
In air transport it is permitted (1. Addendum) to send these substances as before (marking, labelling like dangerous goods UN 3077 and UN 3082 etc.).
If you want to avoid a recheck at the airport, you have to decide wether to use the special provision A 197 or to use the whole dangerous goods regulations for regular transport.
