Transport of dangerous goods: Limited Quantity Checker

Limited Quantities (LQ) is a term from the dangerous goods regulations and means that for dangerous goods, which do not exceed certain quantity limits per inner packaging, relief from the regulations of the dangerous goods regulations can be used.

Selected dangerous goods packed in small quantities (limited quantity) and in an inner and outer packaging may pose a lower risk during transportation than corresponding goods transported in larger quantities. Therefore, they qualify for some exemption from the strict packaging requirements, provided they are properly packaged and labeled. This can save considerable costs for packaging and shipping.
