NO CERTIFICATE – NO CARRIAGE
AFRA has always advocated via training that LP Gas Cylinders must be emptied prior to transportation.
Dangerous Goods Regulations states that such goods must not be transported inan enclosed freight container, enclosed vehicle or enclosed compartment of a vehicle unless the vehicle is ventilated to prevent the build up of vapours that are likely to increase risk.
Despite this warning under the Australian Dangerous Goods Code, LP Gas,which is packed in a cylinder, may be transported so long as the cylinder is gasfree and empty and a certificate has been issued from a Gas Cylinder Test Station certified by Standards Australia stating that it is empty.
To locate your nearest Test Station, please perform a search for ‘Gas Cylinder Testing’ via www.yellowpages.com.au
