Accurate hazard assessment of cargoes is essential for ensuring that any potential environmental and health risks associated with their production, transport and storage are appropriately managed.

  2. Discuss the specific hazards considered in each of these regulations and provide an overview of the prescribed laboratory test methods required for accurate hazard assessment.
