 (31 May 13)

A.
Yes, this DGD is acceptable. UN 3082 is in liquid state therefore its net quantity is expressed in litres. The substance is packed together with Dry Ice, therefore, here it should be expressed in net quantity. However, the maximum limit permitted in PI Y964 is 30kg G, the “Total Gross Weight 12kg G” entry under “All packed in one fibreboard box” is appropriate and necessary.
