Schedule 3 Legend

ALPHABETICAL INDEX


LEGEND

This Schedule contains the shipping or technical names of substances and articles set out in alphabetical order.

Substances that are forbidden for transport, whether or not they have a UN number, are also included in this Schedule.

Col. 1A Shipping or Technical Name. This column gives the substance name, article name or shipping name for the dangerous goods. The shipping name is written in upper case letters (capitals). The French name for each entry is given in Col. 1B.

The abbreviation N.O.S. means ?NOT OTHERWISE SPECIFIED?.

For the purpose of determining the alphabetical order, the following information has been ignored even when it forms part of the shipping name: numbers; Greek letters; the abbreviations ?sec? and ?tert?; and the letters ?N?(Nitrogen), ?n?(normal), ?o?(ortho), ?m?(meta) and ?p?(para).

Col. 2 Primary Class. This column gives the primary class of the dangerous goods. It does not give the subsidiary classes, if any. The subsidiary classes are given in Schedule 1.

The word ?Forbidden? in this column means that the substance must not be transported. A person may apply for a Permit for Equivalent Level of Safety to transport the substance (see Part 14 (Permit for Equivalent Level of Safety)).

Col. 3 UN Number. This column gives the UN number, if any, that corresponds to the shipping name in Col. 1A. The UN number is the reference point that can be used to identify in, Schedule 1, the classification elements for the substance.

Col. 4 Marine Pollutant. This column indicates whether the dangerous goods are marine pollutants. The letter ?P? indicates a marine pollutant.

Note 1 Marine pollutants are identified only in this Schedule. Certain marine pollutants have not been classified in an N.O.S. or generic entry. If they meet the criteria of Classes 1 to 8, they must be classified in accordance with Part 2 (Classification). A substance that does not meet the criteria for inclusion in any of these classes must be included in Class 9, Miscellaneous Products Substances or Organisms, and be offered for transport and transported under

     (a) for a solid, UN3077, ENVIRONMENTALLY HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE, SOLID, N.O.S; or

     (b) for a liquid, UN3082, ENVIRONMENTALLY HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE, LIQUID, N.O.S.

Note 2 The word ?see? in column 3 means that the substance for which it is shown must be offered for transport and transported under the shipping name corresponding to the UN number indicated.

HOW TO USE SCHEDULE 3

This explanation describes how to use this Schedule.

Four entries are used in the following four examples to illustrate four separate situations pertaining to the classification of marine pollutants. The entries are: Chlorine, Cymol, Aldrin and Copper Metal Powder.

Example 1 : Chlorine, UN1017

Chlorine is a substance listed in Schedule 1 under its shipping name with its corresponding UN number, UN1017. Chlorine must therefore be offered for transport and transported under UN1017, CHLORINE.

How to use Schedule 3 - Example 3 - Chlorine, UN1017

Example 2 : Cymol

Cymol is a synonym for cymene. Schedule 1 lists ?CYMENES? as the shipping name, which includes the three isomers (ortho, meta and para) for cymene. Cymol must therefore be offered for transport and transported under UN2046, CYMENES, if it meets the criteria for inclusion in Class 3, Flammable Liquids.

How to use Schedule 3 - Example 2 : Cymol

Example 3 : Aldrin

Aldrin is a generic name for 1,2,3,4,10,10-Hexachloro-1,4,4a,5,8,8a-hexahydro-1,4:5,8-dimethanonaphthalene. Col. 1A shows that Aldrin must be offered for transport and transported under the shipping name ORGANOCHLORINE PESTICIDE. Schedule 1 lists three possible UN Numbers for ORGANOCHLORINE PESTICIDE, depending on its properties: UN2762, UN2995 or UN2996.

How to use Schedule 3 - Example 3 : Aldrin

Example 4 : Copper Metal Powder

Copper Metal Powder is an example of dangerous goods that are identified only in this Schedule. Col. 3 shows ?see Note 1? for this substance, which means that the substance must be assigned to Classes 1 to 8, if applicable, or to Class 9.
