What does adr transport Birmingham define?
The content of the adr transport Birmingham consists of the proper part and two annexes: A and B.

materials and objects that pose a projection hazard but not a mass explosion hazard;
materials and articles presenting a fire hazard and a low explosion or projection hazard, or both, but which do not present a mass explosion hazard;
materials and articles which present only a low risk of explosion if ignited or initiated during transport;
very low sensitivity substances having a mass explosion hazard which are so insensitive that they are unlikely to initiate or progress from combustion to detonation under normal conditions of transport;
extremely insensitive items that do not pose a risk of mass explosion.
Class 2 – gases:
