Explanatory Note

This Equivalency Certificate authorizes the loading and unloading of hydrogen peroxide from railway tank cars without bounding or grounding the tank cars. Due to the chemical properties of hydrogen peroxide, it is believed that an equivalent level of safety can be achieved by preventing the exposure of the dangerous goods to fire hazards as this poses a greater risk.
