El embalaje de artículos de pirotecnia tiene que cumplir unas normas muy exigentes, dentro de las mercancías peligrosas. Necesita una acreditación previa que debe obtener por parte del Organismo de Control Autorizado (OCA).Tras esta acreditación previa, los embalajes especializados deben ser examinados por laboratorios externos para homologarlos dentro de la clase 1 de materiales y objetos explosivos para las normativas ADR-RID, IMDG, IATA-OACI. Toda esta normativa y legislación determina la seguridad durante el manipulado y transporte de estos productos para así evitar daños a operarios o al medio ambiente.
International and national regulations are very stringent regarding dangerous goods. To be sure we are compliant with all the legal requirements, we are subject to authorization by the competent authorities, (OCA). Following this accreditation, all boxes are put through the required tests before they are approved for dangerous goods applications. The performed tests are conducted by an independent laboratory for homologation, within Class 1, for substances and explosive goods according to the safety guidelines ADR-RID, IMDG, IATA, OACI. Compliance with the safety provisions during transportation and the handling of explosives and fireworks, will ensure the safety of people and minimize the environmental impact.
Our company uses combined packaging: the inner packaging helps protect the product from transport and storage damages. The inner packaging surrounds the product, which in turn is protected by the outer packaging.
The outside of the packaging must identify the explosive substances and articles and the hazards posed by them as packaged for transport. Products that are categorized as dangerous goods need to be protected according to the dangerous goods classification, therefore, any mistakes in the labelling, might mean the rejection of the goods, apart from the economic loss.
This is why to have a fully certified dangerous goods packaging provider, who is flexible and efficient is vital at all times. To guarantee the transportation and storage of dangerous goods is an essential aspect for the manufactures of these products. Transporting dangerous goods is a complex procedure and requires detailed understanding and knowledge of the relevant regulations, to avoid penalties or economic losses should your goods are retained.
