Type of Standards


This standard identifies the various types of large packaging that are suitable for the transport of dangerous goods by road and rail. It describes minimum performance requirements for the large packaging, the procedures to be followed to obtain approval from test stations or certification authorities and gives details of the marking and labelling to be displayed on the large packaging.NOTE The requirements of this standard do not apply to a) gases of Class 2, except aerosol dispensers and gas cylinder, b) infectious substances of Division 6.2, except clinical waste of UN 3291 (see BOS 540), and c) Class 7 packages containing radioactive material.

The Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) understands the importance of impartiality and confidentiality in carrying out its management system certification activities. BOBS management is committed to gaining and maintaining the reputation, credibility and ultimately, confidence of its stakeholders in rendering its certification services. Additionally, BOBS strives to continuously manage foreseen potential conflicts of duty and interest and ensures objectivity of its activities under the management system certification. To achieve the above, BOBS shall identify, analyse, record and manage potential conflict of duty and interest to ensure that certification services are not provided within relationships that have been identified to pose an unacceptable threat to impartiality. An Impartiality Committee shall periodically review activities of the certification function to verify commitment to credibility and fairness. The Committee shall further assist in the development of policies relating to impartiality of providing certification activities. BOBS is committed to maintaining in strict confidence all information accessed while rendering the certification services and shall ensure that such information is not divulged to third parties without the Client’s written consent unless if required by law.
