The transport of hazardous goods is considered risky if the goods are not correctly declared, packaged, labelled or are incorrectly handled. Not only do "covert hazardous goods" which have not been declared represent a risk to the life and limb of DHL’s processing staff, they may also endanger general safety and the environment.
Goods for everyday needs such as cleaning products, aerosols, cosmetics or medicine containing alcohol and certain electronic equipment are considered hazardous goods.
If you intend to ship these products either privately or for business reasons and are not sure how to declare hazardous goods, please contact the DHL hazardous goods experts via the customer service before shipping.
Manufacturers of the products stated above will provide you with information regarding transport in what are known as safety data sheets. If the products are hazardous products which are not regulated by any rules or standards, note this in the waybill using the words "not restricted as per special provision A".
If you are sure that your shipments do not contain any hazardous goods, add the words "not restricted" to the statement of contents on the waybill.
