When Do I Require a DGSA? – What you need to know

Are you manufacturing, storing handling or transporting anything containing Lithium (i.e. batteries), drug delivery devices, pharmaceuticals, paints, inks and perfumes?

Handling and Transport of Dangerous goods is both hazardous and heavily regulated.  If you make, fill store or transport any of these, you are required to have a DGSA – Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser.

As well as obviously dangerous goods, legislation also includes many less obvious examples: Detonators for Airbags, anything containing Lithium (i.e. batteries), seat belt pre-tensioners, drug delivery devices, pharmaceuticals, paints, certain inks and perfumes to name a few.
