dc.description.abstract Effective January 1, 1991, both international and domestic hazardous materials must be transported according to the shipment required by the United Nation Recommendations (UN Recommendations). This mandate to follow the UN Recommendations has caused a lot of confusions for packers, shippers and shipping agents. Due to the confusion surrounding the use of this document, this thesis provides a basic guideline and complete instructions on how to handle hazardous materials smartly and safely. Not understanding the regulations involved in hazardous material movement could result in much confusion in dealing with these type of materials. These analysis will clarify such areas as the responsibility of the shipper, shipping requirement, bills of lading regulations, terminology, and container constructions, which can help them in safe and effective handling of hazardous materials during transportation. This thesis is divided into two sections: Section 1 deals with material classification, packaging marking, labeling, loading, paper work etc. Section 2 is the analysis of standard regulations of American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) and US Department of Transportation (DOT) which developed a new test method, materials and construction specifications for packagings as well as miscellaneous information on hazardous material packaging. en_US
