Segregation Table

The table on the next page shows the general requirements for segregation between the various classes of dangerous goods.

Since the properties of substances or articles within each class may vary greatly, the individual schedules should always be consulted for particular requirements for segregation as these take precedence over the general requirements! Segregation should also take account of a single subsidiary risk table.
