A.
hen “All packed in one” is applied to LTD QTY, you will follow DGR 2.7.5.6. Subparagraphs (e) and (f) apply.

DGR 2.7.5.6 (e) will apply to UN 2735 Amines, liquid, corrosive, n.o.s. (xxxxx) PG II, and the Q Value will be: Q = 0.2L/0.5L = 0.4.

DGR 2.7.5.6 (f) will apply to UN 3082 Environmentally hazardous substance, liquid, n.o.s. (xxxxx) PG III, and there is no need to consider Class 9 substances/articles in the Q calculation. You will however need to limit the gross weight of the All packed in one to 30kg G.

The Dec aration will be written as follows:

UN 2735 Amines, liquid, corrosive, n.o.s. (xxxxx)           8 PG II 0.2L PI Y840
UN 3082 Environmentally hazardous substance, liquid, n.o.s. (xxxxx)  9 PG III 10kgG PI Y964

Q = 0.4

The Note following DGR 8.1.6.9.2 (g) refers to Q calculation for PAX or CAO quantities. All packed in one for LTD QTY is written in DGR 2.7.5.6.
