The BAM List

Since 1989 the BAM List has been the basis for BAM's substance-related prototype approvals for tank containers and portable tanks designed for the carriage of dangerous goods. Since 2013 this has been applied also to prototype approvals for demountable tanks and fixed tanks (tank-vehicles). In addition, the list is used as a knowledge source for rail tank-waggons. Furthermore, it serves as a reference for the material related evaluation of other types of containments carrying dangerous goods.

BAM List contains especially dangerous goods that are permitted for carriage in tanks. Because of their special requirements, substances of class 1 and 7 are not contained in this list, with few exceptions.

BAM List is available in two versions: as single user standalone or multi user network.

  • Comparison of land and sea transport in the detail view
  • Coloured emphasis of differences between ADR and RID in land transport
