When dangerous goods are combined with non-dangerous goods this can affect the classification of the substance.

  • If a product is mixed with a non-dangerous good and still meets the classification criteria for that substance then a shipping name containing the word “mixture” or “solution” may be used, provided that it wasn’t already there and doing so will not confuse the new dangerous good with one that has a different class, division or packing group.

However, if the addition of the non-dangerous goods is sufficient enough to prevent the substance from meeting any of the classification criteria, then it is no longer subject to the regulations.

For example:

If ethanol is mixed with water, it becomes less flammable and if enough water is added to raise the flash point above 60ºC, it is no longer considered a dangerous good.

It must be noted that dangerous goods that do not meet the classification criteria of Classes 1 to 8 may still be subject to inclusion in Class 9.  So, before a substance can be determined as “non-regulated” Section 2.43 TDGR must be consulted.
