Global Harmonized System for Dangerous Goods

netcon int. GmbH – Defense & Explosives

Global Harmonized System for Classification and Marking of Chemicals
Before introducing them onto the market, all chemicals are subject to mandatory classification and labeling by identifying their hazardous substance properties and labeling them with the respective hazardous symbols in order to protect humans and the environment from negative effects when handling these chemicals.

As there are different systems of classifying and labeling chemicals around the world, it can happen, that a substance or mixture of substances is classified and treated as hazardous material in one country, but not in another. This fact does not only leads to problems in international transport or trade, but also with consumers and in occupational safety.

Therefore, the aim of the GHS (Globally Harmonized System) is to create a globally standardized system for the classification and labeling of chemicals. Wherever the GHS is introduced, even it is in China, the USA, or Europe, chemicals will be classified and labeled according to uniform criteria in the future. For example, if there is a substance that is toxic or dangerous to the environment, then it will be marked with the same symbol, worldwide.

IATA-compliant dangerous goods packaging and documentation

netcon int. GmbH – Defense & Explosives

When it comes to the transport of explosive substances, articles, and pyrotechnics – in short, the transport of materials of dangerous goods class 1 – the parties involved facing a huge amount of regulations, guidelines, and laws (Explosives Act, ADR, IMDG, weapons law, Hazardous Goods Transport Act, etc.).

An important indicator for materials of dangerous goods class 1 is the net explosive mass (NEM) also known as net explosive quantity (NEQ). This figure provides information about the proportion of the pure explosive substances that the article, objects, or substance contain.

Based on the net explosive quantity, various storage and transport requirements are defined such as the corresponding UN dangerous goods packaging, the equipment of the vehicle, the training requirements for the driver, or the relevant dangerous goods documentation. However, the net explosive mass can also have an impact on the transport route itself if, for example, transport is only allowed in a cargo aircraft or the port authorities of certain ports prohibit the handling or transit of defined NEQ quantities.

It is simply explained using the example of ammunition:

The completely packed ammunition (left picture) including the outer packaging, inner packaging, and of course the ammunition itself, is indicated with the gross weight. The pure product (middle picture), namely the ammunition as it is fired (case, projectile, propellant charge, percussion cap), is indicated with the net weight. The propellant powder with which the projectile is driven out of the case (right picture) is given as the net explosive mass.

It is interesting that the net weight of certain goods can also be the same as the net explosive mass. This is the case when, for example, the pure propellant powder is shipped for the manufacture of ammunition.

IATA-compliant dangerous goods packaging and documentation

netcon int. GmbH – DG Industrial

Many European-based manufacturers and/or senders of dangerous goods have staff with the necessary training and training certificates for processing and implementation in accordance with ADR / or IMDG regulations, but not for packaging and documentation in accordance with the international IATA regulations for shipping dangerous goods by air. For this mode of transport, separate, cost-intensive, and complicated certifications are necessary, which means that the involved parties sometimes facing major challenges or do not even send their goods by air and switch to other modes of transport. This in turn can lead to significant competitive disadvantages. In addition, the IATA regulations are significantly stricter and the exemption limits are significantly lower. This means that almost all dangerous goods must be packed and appropriately recorded by certified personnel in accordance with the IATA regulations and with UN-certified packaging material.

As part of our international air freight solutions for dangerous goods and goods of all kinds that require approval (ammunition, chemicals, pyrotechnic objects, etc.), netcon int. GmbH also offers its customers IATA-compliant packaging and the issuance of an IATA dangerous goods declaration, the so-called Shippers Declaration of Dangerous Goods. Here we have a well-established network of airport-related contact points within Germany as well as on the European level, through which we can ensure short and efficient routes as well as professional and careful processing.

From ADR-compliant transport and documentation from your warehouse to IATA-compliant packaging, marking, and documentation to international air transport and delivery to the destination - worldwide.

Convince yourself of our extensive service portfolio and do not hesitate to contact us.

A specialist in international ADR-/dangerous goods transports

netcon int. GmbH – DG Industrial

The European and worldwide transport of dangerous goods by road is complex in many respects and regularly poses major challenges for the economic operators involved.

The transport of dangerous goods is regulated on a national level by sea, land, and air by the Hazardous goods transport act (GGBefG) and in conjunction with the ADR (European agreement on the international carriage of dangerous goods by road) on an international level.

In order to be able / allowed to transport a dangerous substance or object commercially, it must be clearly classified. Basically, dangerous goods are class – divided into nine different classes of dangerous goods, while some of them can be further divided into subclasses and compatibility groups – e.g. Class 1 „Explosives“; Division 1.1 „Substances or objects which are capable of mass explosion“; compatibility group D „ detonating explosive substance or black powder“ – 1.1D.

You can find a detailed overview of the various dangerous goods classes under the following link in our INFOPOOL.

Each dangerous good is additionally provided with a unique UN number (also called substance number), which means that, in addition to the generally applicable dangerous goods regulations, individual regulations for a specific dangerous product can also be determined. These provisions relate, for example, to ADR-compliant dangerous goods packaging, documentation (e.g. transport documents according to ADR), mixed loading bans, marking and labeling of packages, containers, and vehicles, permitted quantities, training of the personnel involved, features and certification of the vehicles and equipment.

In short, the ADR dangerous goods regulations control in detail all factors that have an influence on the safe transport of dangerous goods, and these are also strictly monitored by the controlling authorities.

In addition to the ADR dangerous goods regulations mentioned above, there are in many cases additional regulations and legal bases that must be considered for the transport of dangerous goods. For example, the national explosives act applies to the transport of pyrotechnics/explosives (dangerous goods class 1), the REACH regulation and, if applicable, the dual-use regulation for chemicals, the national or international waste law for goods declared as waste or the explosives and weapons law act for ammunition.

Here it is important to mind once again that not all regulations apply across Europe and that many laws are regulated at the national level. In the case of transit through different EU states, for example, this means that the goods/transport are confronted with different legal situations, all of which must be brought into line.

The department „DG – Industrial“ at netcon int. GmbH is familiar with the handling of international ADR / dangerous goods transports for several years and has a wide range of specialist knowledge, a comprehensive wealth of experience, and well-known reference projects in international transport.

In addition to the pure transport service - from sprinter vehicle to 40t box trucks - netcon int. GmbH also offers its customers the Europe-wide application for transport permits, ADR-compliant packaging, and documentation, the temporary storage of dangerous goods of various classes as well as the planning and processing of more comprehensive and permanent transport solutions.

We would be pleased to answer any questions you may have - contact us.

GmbH Fine Art Logistics, UNESCO ambassador Ute Ohoven, the German ambassador as well as the art expert and moderator Wolfram Kons - were invited to a personal audience with President Macky Sall in the presidential office.

Needless to say that it was a special honor for everyone involved which we want to draw attention to again retrospectively via our newsfeed.

Official trademark registration of „Fine Art Logistics“


netcon int. GmbH – Fine Art Logistics

Since its foundation in 2016, netcon int. GmbH is specialized in international transport- and project solutions of sensitive goods, goods subject to permission, and hazardous materials.

This specialization is based on various years of experience in international project- and transport-management solutions of explosives and pyrotechnics (class 1), hazardous goods classes 2-6, 8, 9 (ADR-Goods) as well as other sensitive goods from the sector of hazardous and non- hazardous waste materials, defense equipment, and cultural goods.

Despite the fact that all of these goods mutually require a very sensitive handling and in-depth knowledge about packing and packaging, documentation as well as legal and individual requirements during the export, import or transit processings by air- and ocean freight, there are still very clear differences between industrial and cultural goods.

Due to these different requirements and the extraordinary demand for our logistical services, netcon int. GmbH decided to separate the two business divisions structurally at an early stage and divided them into the „Fine Art Logistics“ and „DG – Industrial“ business divisions.

With this step, we ensure that we can offer our customers a safe, reliable, and solid logistics-service, not only in regards to the transport itself but also in regard to the structural requirements of a reputable art transport company.

In line with this, in the future, we will handle the entire spectrum of international art logistics with our now officially registered brand „Fine Art Logistics“. We‘re offering our clients the whole range of logistics services such as professional art packing and packaging, storage of artworks, international art transports by ocean freight, air freight, rail or road as well as the involved customs formalities or project handling of extensive art exhibitions on an international level.

We are proud of the official entry in the German patent and trademark register and looking forward to the coming projects.

Logistic projects & supply chains – we keep on working!

netcon int. GmbH – DG Industrial

The global Covid-19 crisis is causing major economic losses in both the German and international markets and companies worldwide facing extraordinary challenges and problems.

A lot of companies from trade and industry are forced to partially or completely shut down production or trade which leads to losses for both the companies themselves as well as their partners from the supply and service industry.

The logistics industry is also affected by the current situation and has to struggle with the effects. The global market is weakened and tonnage in the land-, air- and sea freight transport decreased remarkably as well as authorities and companies in the logistics industry sometimes work only to a limited extent which causes considerable delays - e.g. when processing permission applications or customs clearance.

But even during these times some of the companies and production sides continue to operate under difficult circumstances accordingly the dependence on the reliable supply of raw materials and logistics services becomes more and more important.

We continue to support our customers with reliable logistics services!

With certain precautions netcon int. GmbH keeps on working and our team continues to provide our customers with reliable logistics solutions for the delivery of goods as well as the supply of needed materials by land, air, and sea.

Especially in the field of explosives and the transportation of dangerous goods, in general, the logistics chains are subject to increased requirements. However, even under these special conditions we are able to support the worldwide economy due to our established transport routes and our strong partner network.

Even in the event of unpredictable situations such as last-minute changes in timetables, production processes, or cargo clearance we are able to react quickly due to our strong logistical structure so that we can offer our clients storage capacities or other supplementary logistical services for example.
