Packaging dangerous goods for transport (carriage) is an extremely complex area which has a comprehensive and detailed body of legislation surrounding it. Some regulations aim to minimise the risk of large-scale incidents, whereas others are designed to protect individuals from risks inherent in the everyday use of chemicals.
