About HAZMAT

Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) or “dangerous goods” are defined as any solids, liquids, or gases that can cause harm to living things, property, or the environment. HAZMAT can include materials that are radioactive, flammable, toxic, or explosive.

There are nine overarching classes of hazardous materials, most of which are further divided into subcategories. Each hazard class is assigned its own diamond shaped label to communicate the hazard and class number. Hazard classifications are also known as hazard identifiers.

The UN Model Regulations that govern the classification system depend on the danger it presents to the carrier. Your factory should be able to indicate if the goods produced fall into one of these categories.

To better explore each of the nine HAZMAT classes, scroll through this detailed Hazardous Materials Table.
