Changes to Dangerous Goods Carriage on Cook Straight Services.

From 1 July 2014 the use of Dangerous Goods Maritime Placards will be required for all Cook Straight Ferry services.

In summary the changes to past practise are:

1. The use of the mixed class (bumblebee) road transport placard is not acceptable for maritime transport. Each class of dangerous goods exceeding the limited quantity threshold must be placarded seperately.

2. If the vehicle is carrying marine pollutants the vehicle must display the Ecotoxic (marine pollutant) placard, as well as any relevant DG class placards  


3. If the vehicle is carrying Dangerous Goods packed in limited quantities only, the Limited Quantities Placard must be shown.
