Transport in Asia Pacific

In Asia Pacific, the land transport of dangerous goods follows the same transport classification criteria as in Europe.

For sea transport of products in package form and air transport, Asia Pacific countries apply the international transportation regulations IMDG and IATA respectively, as in Europe and the Americas.

For sea transport of liquids chemicals in bulk, IBC Code and MARPOL Annex II (as chemicals) are applied – as in Europe – but in the case of some chemicals, Asia Pacific countries follow and adopt the criteria and classification recommended by the US Coast Guard (USCG) under MARPOL Annex I (as oils).
