Other significant changes

UN 3166 and 3171 (vehicles) no longer have SP960 (not regulated). They have SP961 -exempt if on vehicle decks, but otherwise they are regulated according to SP962. They need not be labelled, marked or placarded, but they must be on the DGN. Fuel cell powered engines and vehicles are now names under UN 3166.

A new chapter 5.5 covers provisions for UN 3359 now called a FUMIGATED CARGO TRANSPORT UNIT, collecting the text from various other places.

Calcium Hypochlorites, UN 1748, 2208 and 2880 no longer have a possible corrosive subrisk. There are new UN numbers 3485-7 for these.

UN numbers 1391, 1649 and 2031 no longer have a possible subrisk 3 for the cases where the flashpoint is below 60. There are new UN numbers 3482-4 for these.

Limited quantity packages need no longer be marked with the UN number. There is a new diamond label for LQ packages, or a version with a Y inside if consigned under the limited quantity requirements for air transport. This is also the design of the placard-sized mark for CTUs containing only LQ, replacing the 'LTD QTY' mark. See chapter 3.4.

Extremely flammable substances such as UN 1131 Carbon Disulphide are no longer prohibited on ships carrying explosives. They just require a segregation value of 4. The exemptions for 1.4S, articles for life-saving purposes, 10Kg of G articles except fireworks, etc. are no longer required.

Paragraph 5.4.1.5.1 explicitly says the number, type and capacity of the inner packaging is not required.

A new paragraph 5.4.6 requires the consignor and the carrier to retain Dangerous Goods documents for 3 months.
