(1) This Standard is not intended to be a manual for the selection of the appropriate means of containment for the transportation of dangerous goods. Rather, it simply sets out certain minimum requirements. In particular; this Standard does not address the chemical compatibility between dangerous goods and the various materials of construction. Consequently, it is essential to exercise competent technical and engineering judgement in conjunction with this Standard.

(3) The values given in SI (metric) units are to be considered standard. The values in parenthesis are for information only.
Notwithstanding the provisions of this Standard, compliance with the provisions of the Transpor¬tation of Dangerous Goods Act of 1980 and the Regulations thereto may call for additional requirements due to particular characteristics or properties of individual dangerous goods. Any requirements of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations regarding the design, construc¬tion, testing, or retesting of highway tanks or portable tanks shall be fully complied with.
