What standards of electronic documentation are acceptable?
Compatibility with ADR 188.8.131.52.1
Some electronic systems for producing transport documentation, and in some cases where the information is carried on a device, do not have the capacity to reproduce all the information required by paragraph 184.108.40.206.1. An example is
UN1863 Fuel, Aviation, Turbine Engine 3, PG III (D/E)
This problem arises most commonly in the bulk fuels market, where transport units are carrying a limited range of different products, but may also be seen in other sectors.
In these cases, no exception should be taken to the transport documentation being a combination of "loading tickets", which may have acronyms and abbreviations such as ULSP, ULSD, or JET A1, and a card linking those abbreviations with the ADR information.
Compartment 1 ULSD 7500 litres on the "loading ticket" and
ULSD UN 1202 DIESEL FUEL 3, PG III (D/E) on the accompanying card
