Class 1 Dangerous Goods - Explosives

Dangerous Goods which are classed as Explosives are materials or items which have the ability to rapidly conflagrate or detonate as a consequence of chemical reaction.

Sub-Divisions

1.1: Substances and articles which have a mass explosion hazard.

1.2: Substances and articles which have a projection hazard but not a mass explosion hazard.

1.3: Substances and articles which have a fire hazard and either a minor blast hazard or a minor projection hazard or both.

1.4: Substances and articles which present no significant hazard; only a small hazard in the event of ignition or initiation during transport with any effects largely confined to the package.

1.5: Very insensitive substances which have a mass explosion hazard.

1.6: Extremely insensitive articles which do not have a mass explosion hazard.
