(Please guide us on the need for segregating Dangerous Goods in Excepted Quantities.)

Q.
In DGR 2.6.1 of Dangerous Goods in Excepted Quantities there are 8 bullet points which must be adhered to. The 4th bullet point refers to 5.0.2.11 (a) but it does not show 5.0.2.11 (b), the latter referring to Table 9.3.A. Does this mean that in segregating Dangerous Goods in Excepted Quantities there is no need to apply Table 9.3.A? (30 Jun 13)

A.
As already referred to in our FAQ posted 30 November 2010 (DGR 52 Edition) where we may have caused misguidance by over-simplifying the explanation, shippers who have ample knowledge of chemistry can be guided by the language spelled out in 5.0.2.11 (a). However, forwarders and airlines who are not chemists need to rely on the simple and comprehensive Table 9.3.A and check for an X mark at the intersection.

Therefore, in order to effect segregation which is necessary even for excepted quantities, forwarders and airlines will have to rely on Table 9.3.A.
