> Safety > Hazardous Product Packaging
Plastic packaging meets the requirements in force in terms of safety and protection.
These demands particularly involve the choice of relevant materials for the packed goods and the implementation of strict manufacturing procedures.
The stringent tests carried out (chemical compatibility of materials used, pressure tests, drop tests, etc.) and the strict procedures for traceability and consumer information ensure the activity has the highest safety and control standards.
Packaging for hazardous products complies in particular with the European agreement on international road transport of hazardous goods (ADR), supervised by the UN Economic Commission. Equivalent provisions also exist for rail (RID) and waterway (ADN) transports.
Regulations are updated regularly to take into account technical progress, in particular.
In France, the public authority contact is the Transport Mission of the Sustainable Development Ministry.
ELIPSO is represented in the work meetings organised by the Mission.
