FIFTH SCHEDULE [Regulation 16.] LIST OF HAZARDOUS CHARACTERISTICS UN Code Characteristics Class UN CLASS CODE CHARACTERISTICS 1 HI Explosive An explosive substance or waste is a solid or liquid substance or waste (or mixture of substances or wastes) which is in itself capable by chemical reaction or producing gas at such a temperature and pressure and at such a speed as to cause damage to the surroundings.

3 H3 Flammable Liquids The word flammable has the same meaning as inflammable.

Flammable liquids are liquids, or mixtures of liquids, or liquids containing solids in solution or suspension (for example paints, varnishes, lacquers and others but not including substances or wastes otherwise classified on account of their dangerous characteristics) which give off a flammable vapour at temperatures of not more than 60.5C, closed-cup test, or not more than 65.6C open-cup test (since the results of open-cup tests and closed-up tests are not strictly comparable and even individual results by the same tests are often variable, regulations varying from the above figures to make allowance for such difference would be within the spirit of this definition).

4.1 H4.1 Flammable Solids Solids or waste solids, other than those classed as explosives, which under conditions encountered in transport are readily combustible, or may cause or contribute to fire through friction.

4.2 H4.2 Substances or wastes liable to spontaneous combustion Substance or wastes which are liable to spontaneous heating under normal conditions encountered in transport or to heating up on tract with air, and being then liable to catch fire.

4.3 H4.3 Substances or wastes which, in contact with water emit flammable gases.

Substances or wastes which, by interaction with water, are liable to become spontaneously flammable or give off flammable gases in dangerous quantities.

5.1 H5.1 Oxiding Substances or wastes which, while in themselves not necessary combustible, may generally, by yielding oxygen, cause or contribute to the combustion of other materials.

6.1 H6.1 Toxic or poisonous (Acute) Substances or wastes liable either to cause death or serious injury to the human health if swallowed or inhaled or by skin contact.

6.2 H6.2 Infectious substances extremely hazardous to health Substances or wastes containing viable micro-organisms or their toxins which are known or suspected to cause disease in animals or humans.

8 H8 Corrosives Substances or wastes which, by chemical action, will cause severe damage when in contact with living tissue, or in the case of leakage will materially damage, or even destroy, other goods in the means of transport; they may also cause other hazards.

9 H10 Liberation of toxic gases in contact with air or water Substances or wastes which by interaction with air or water, are liable to give out toxic gases in dangerous quantities.

9 H11 Toxic (delayed or chronic) Substances or wastes which, by interaction with air or water, are liable to give out toxic gases in dangerous quantities.

Substances or wastes which, if they are inhaled or ingested or if they penetrate through the skin may involve delayed or chronic effects, including carcinogenicity.

9 H12 Ecotoxic Substances or wastes which, if released present or may present immediate or delayed adverse impacts to the environment by means of bio-accumulation and/or toxic effects upon biotic systems.

9 H13 Capable, by means, after disposal, of yielding another material e.g.

leachate which possesses any of the characteristics listed above.

10 H14 Radioactive waste 11 H15 Persistent waste; waste which contaminate the environment for long periods of time.

12 H16 Carcinogenic wastes which may lead to development of cancer in human beings or animals.
