(Question in reference to State Variation USG-13.)

Q.
We intend to forward UN 3513 Adsorbed gas, oxidizing, n.o.s. ★ Div. 2.2 (Sub-risk 5.1) and UN 1950 Aerosols, non-flammable, containing substances in Class 8, PG III, Div. 2.2 (Sub-risk 8) to the United States. Even if these gases have a subsidiary risk, may we load up to net 75kg of Div. 2.2 Non-flammable non-toxic gas in an inaccessible cargo compartment as stated in State Variation USG-13 provided they are acceptable on passenger aircraft?  (31 Jan 16)

A.
When applying Table USG-13.A “Quantity and Loading Table” contained in State Variation USG-13, provided there are no other requirements, there is no need to consider their subsidiary risks. UN 3513 Adsorbed gas, oxidizing, n.o.s. ★ Div. 2.2 (Sub-risk 5.1) and UN 1950 Aerosols, non-flammable, containing substances in Class 8, PG III, Div. 2.2 (Sub-risk 8) are both acceptable on passenger aircraft, therefore, they can be loaded in an inaccessible cargo compartment as long as the net 75kg limit is followed. Furthermore, subsidiary risks Div. 5.1 and Class 8 do not require segregation.
