The International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations are published by the IATA Dangerous Goods Board pursuant to IATA Resolutions 618 and 619 and constitute a manual of industry carrier regulations to be followed by all IATA Member airlines when transporting hazardous materials.
The International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code lays down basic principles for transporting hazardous chemicals. Detailed recommendations for individual substances and a number of recommendations for good practice are included in the classes dealing with such substances. A general index of technical names has also been compiled. This index should always be consulted when attempting to locate the appropriate procedures to be used when shipping any substance or article.
Bromine is usually shipped in monel alloy drums constructed of 14-gage metal and designed to contain 38 L or 102 kg of liquid bromine. Larger bulk shipments of bromine use lead- or nickel-lined tank cars or tank trucks. The latter must be filled to a minimum 98% of capacity before shipping to avoid inertia effects in transport.
