Explanatory Note

This Equivalency Certificate allows relief from Part 2 of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations for the handling, offering for transport or transporting of mixed oilfield production fluids. Due to the nature of oilfield production fluids and the variance in composition, the dangerous goods are classified as UN2924, FLAMMABLE LIQUID, CORROSIVE, N.O.S., Class 3(8), Packing Group II, which represent the "worst case scenario".
