Time & Location

About this session

This feature session will be hosted by two highly experienced industry experts from The Hazchem Network*; Robert Symes, Managing Director and Nada Marinovic, Network Director. Both have many years’ experience in the transportation of hazardous goods providing day to day support and guidance to the networks 60 members, their customers and suppliers ensuring current regulations are maintained.

We anticipate this interactive session will go some way to dispelling the myths around Limited Quantity (LQ) transportation through a detailed insight to the current regulations and the impact on all in the supply chain. You will leave this session with clarity on how to recognise, package and manage your Limited Quantity consignments, as well as receiving direction to relevant resources to check your products LQ status ahead of organising shipping or delivery.

The second topic in this session will focus on highlighting the complex regulatory framework for dangerous substance storage and warehousing. Robert and Nada will provide expert guidance in the Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) linking the audience to the essential considerations when storing and warehousing dangerous goods. Exact COMAH requirements will differ according to the size of operation, however having an understanding there is a strict framework for storage and distribution activities will assist with your compliance.

*The Hazchem Network is the only pallet and parcel network dedicated to chemicals and is backed by the biggest names in UK hazardous goods transportation. The network offers a simple pricing structure, next day delivery and 100% assurance for the safe delivery of dangerous goods in the UK and Europe.
