As you may be aware we have been advised of issues with shipments around the thickness of the line on hazard labels (not being 2mm wide). This is not a requirement and is outlined further below:
“As it is now well documented that the UN Subcommittee and the ICAO Dangerous Goods Panel have determined that the thickness of the line on hazard labels has no bearing on safety, and the provisions in the ICAO Technical Instructions and IATA DGR will formally remove reference to the thickness of the line on hazard labels with effect 1 January 2019, please find attached a guidance document advising that the dangerous goods acceptance check should not consider the thickness of the line.”
Dave Brennan, Assistant Director Cargo, Safety and Standards.
