The Year in Review: Dangerous Goods Shipping Regs

The electronics OEMs do their share of preparing, processing, accepting, and handling dangerous goods shipments. And the safety of many people relies on the strength of the supply chain of these organizations.

Compliance around documentation and preparing dangerous shipments, though, is a moving target. The only constant is change.  More difficult still is the reality that every organization, from the smallest to the largest, needs to comply with various operational practices in the shipment of good by air, land, and sea for the system to work.

This year, lithium batteries topped the list of hot topics, but alignment with the United Nations' Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of classification and labeling of chemicals, as well as crude oil shipments were also in the news.

The infographic below from Labelmaster summarizes all of the many transportation and logistics regulations that took place this past year – from lithium batteries and GHS to new demands from the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and the United States Postal Service (USPS).  Take a look and let us know how you think the regulation landscape will evolve in the coming year in the comments section below.
