2 mm line width requirement for the line 5 mm from the edge of the dangerous goods label deleted

Requirement for 2 mm line width deleted

IATA has published a Gudiance Document - Specification of Hazard Labels on 27. March 2018 outlining that the 2 mm line width requirement of the line 5 mm within the edge of the dangerous goods label will now already be deleted.

For 2019 this deletion is entered in Appendix I of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations. And this will now already be implemented.

As a reason IATA points to of the IATA DGR which states that minor variations/differences in the dangerous goods labels are acceptable and therefore must not lead to a non-acceptance of the shipment.

Here is the link to the document:
