Let's examine the additional details of UN FIBC Bags and their handling, as they are made to handle goods that the UN deems hazardous materials.
  • On the basis of the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Items, a variety of international rules govern the international transportation of dangerous goods in bulk bags (also known as the Orange Book).
  • Accordingly, bulk container types are divided into the following groups: metal, flexible, rigid plastics, composite, fiberboard, and wooden.
  • Four different FIBCs for risky items are woven from polypropylene:13 H 1: Woven plastics without a liner or a coating. 13 H 2: Woven plastics with the coating but no inner. 13 H 3: Uncoated with liner, woven plastics. 13 H 4: Woven plastics with liner and coated.
  • UN Bags are also classified according to the Hazard level of the goods they carry.
  • Each UN Bag should carry the UN-Symbol mentioned in below table which shall imply the hazard level of the product (insert table).
  • Bags used for packing hazardous goods can only be made after obtaining a UN certificate issued by an authorized and notified laboratory.
