Obsolete standards formerly approved under the Carriage of Dangerous Goods (Classification, Packaging and Labelling) and Use of Transportable Pressure Receptacles Regulations 1996 (CDGCPL2 Regulations as amended)

Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations 2004 (the Carriage Regulations)

The following standards and specifications were previously approved by the Health and Safety Executive under Schedule 8 of CDGCPL2 for use in Great Britain only

The standards and specifications are now obsolete. Transportable pressure equipment may no longer be manufactured to these obsolete standards and specifications. However, transportable pressure equipment made to these standards may continue to be used if it is safe, suitable and has been examined at appropriate intervals by a competent person in accordance with CDGCPL2 prior to 10 May 2004 or the Carriage Regulations on or after 10 May 2004.
