Hvad betragtes som farligt gods?

Dangerous goods are items or substances which could pose a risk to health, safety, property or the environment. They need to be packed properly, handled carefully and shipped with the required expertise to ensure they arrive safely at their destination.

If you’re not sure whether your shipment is classified as dangerous goods, ask the manufacturer or supplier for a Safety Data Sheet (SDS). If it shows or mentions a UN number in chapter 14, it is a dangerous good.
