General information

The Non-radioactive Materials Research is an extensive JAVA application with a user-friendly search interface for dangerous goods. This application is offered as an internet application and as a standalone application. The data in both applications are equally up to date. In contrast to the standalone application the internet application does not require the installation of the software. An internet browser and a JAVA runtime environment with webstart (see technical requirements) is sufficient.

You can obtain an overview of the application by looking at the demo (see below) - the entire functionality is available but only for a limited number of substances (44 substances from different dangerous goods classes).

The following topics from the dangerous goods regulations are covered in the Dangerous Goods Database:

- Name
- Classification
- Physicochemical materials data
- Material compatibility
- Transport exclusions
- Labelling
- Limited and excepted quantities
- Suitability of containments
- Bulk
- Mixed packing
- Mixed loading, stowage, segregation and handling
- Exceptions and agreements

The short form feature is worth a mention, which summarizes dangerous goods information about a substance and a mode of transport on an A4 page, particularly suited for printing. It also lets you print out physicochemical material data, or save it as a PDF file.



Fees are due immediately after the contract has been executed and then charged annually on 15 March.
