Provides requirements and recommendations for the storage and handling of mixed classes of dangerous goods, in packages and intermediate bulk containers (IBCs), where two or more classes or divisions of dangerous goods are kept in the same store. Includes segregation of dangerous goods within the store, safe separation distances, fire protection and emergency procedures.

This Standard sets out requirements and recommendations for the safe storage and handling of dangerous goods, in packages and intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) of up to 1.6 m3 capacity, where dangerous goods of more than one class are kept within the same store, without the need for segregating walls.NOTES:1 Dangerous goods are classified as such and listed in the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods - Model Regulations. They are also listed in the Australian Dangerous Goods Code (ADG Code) and NZS 5433.2 An outline of the classes and divisions of dangerous goods is provided in Appendix A.3 To achieve storage conditions comparable in safety to those for individual class storages, the various Australian or Joint Standards for the storage and handling of individual classes of dangerous goods have been reviewed and additional requirements and recommendations introduced as necessary. The resulting conditions for mixed class storage are intended to provide an equivalent level of safety as that which would be achieved by applying the relevant Australian Standard for each individual class or division of dangerous goods being kept. ObjectiveThe objective of this Standard is to provide minimum acceptable safety requirements for storage areas, operating procedures, emergency planning and fire protection. It provides technical guidance that may assist in the storage and handling of dangerous goods in accordance with regulatory requirements. In Australia, this would be in accordance with the risk management requirements of NOHSC:1015 and regulations based on that document. In New Zealand, this would be with the HSNO Act.AS/NZS 4360 should also be consulted regarding risk management.
