Class 3 Dangerous Goods - Flammable Liquids

Dangerous Goods which are classed as Flammable liquids are defined by dangerous goods regulations as: liquids, mixtures of liquids or liquids containing solids in solution or suspension which give off a flammable vapour (have a flash point) at temperatures of not more than 60-65°C, liquids offered for transport at temperatures at or above their flash point or substances transported at elevated temperatures in a liquid state and which give off a flammable vapour at a temperature at or below the maximum transport temperature.


There are no subdivisions within Class 3, Flammable Liquids.
