A. DG rules state that if there is a STAR SYMBOL, it is mandatory to add a technical name or a chemical name in parenthesis behind the PSN. Trade secrets are no excuse to evade from this rule. There are only four exceptions which are::
(1) Controlled substances such like drugs, exposure of which are prohibited by international convention of national law;
(2) For explosives, military name or commercial name May be used instead;
(3) For pesticides, a name acknowledged by WHO May be used instead;
(4) For samples sent for further testing, the word SAMPLE must be shown.
Safety is the pr Mar aim, and cargo agents, freight forwarders and airlines who compose the transport chain must abide with the rules. Cargo from shippers who do not follow regulations should not be accepted.
