(When the subsidiary risk label is unnecessary as in the case of UN 1230 Methanol 3 (6.1), is it necessary to enter the subsidiary risk information on the DGD?)

Q.
When the subsidiary risk label is not necessary as in the case of UN 1230 Methanol Class 3 (6.1), is it necessary to enter the subsidiary risk information on the DGD? On the other hand, as in the case of Self-reactive substances (Appendix C.1) and Organic peroxide (Appendix C.2), some of the Notes stipulate that a subsidiary risk label need to be added to the package. Is it necessary to show this additional subsidiary risk information on the DGD? (31 Oct 13)

A.
The rule is that all primary and subsidiary risk information as shown on DGR 4.2 List of Dangerous Goods must be duplicated on the DGD. Therefore in the case of UN 1230 Methanol, even though the 6.1 label may not appear on the package, the DGD must show 3 (6.1).

For Self-reactive substances and Organic peroxides, if the Notes to Appendix C.1 and C.2 indicate that an additional subsidiary risk lsbel is required, such information must appear on the DGD as stipulated in DGR 8.1.6.9.1 Step 4.

Notes. This requirement is also applicable when additional subsidiary risk
labels are required by a Special Provision.
