Dangerous Goods Transportation (Hazchem)

The Hazchem Regulations promulgated under the Hazardous Substances Act, 1973 and which controlled the transport of dangerous substances by road tanker since 10 January 1987 were replaced on 3 August 2001 by a set of regulations made under section 54 (Chapter VIII) of the National Road Traffic Act, 1996. As a result of the implementation of these Dangerous Goods Regulations this control passed from the Department of Health to the Department of Transport and was extended to include the transport of all dangerous goods in packs,containers or bulk. Shipping and General seized this opportunity at inception and is fully compliant and subscribes to the National Road Traffic Act 93 of 96 governing the transport of dangerous goods. Our drivers undergo regular training and possess the relevant D endorsements as required by law. All hazchem equipped vehicles are within full equipment spec and are fire permit approvals are conducted by the Alberton Fire Department. We are currently equipped to handle all classes of hazardous commodities with the exception of class 1 explosives.
