Specifies technical requirements for road tankers transporting flammable liquid such as dangerous goods of Class 3, or having Class 3 subsidiary risks, for designers, planners, operators and regulators. This Standard allows the use of alternative materials, designs, method of assembly and procedures subject to an equivalent level of safety being maintained. In this edition the subject matter regarding tank design and baffle arrangements has been expanded to cover most tank vehicles and trailers.
