Model regulations on the transport of dangerous goods

These Model Regulations consist of seven parts, each of which is divided into chapters. Chapters are numbered sequentially within each part, with the first digit identifying the part in which the chapter is located. For example, the second chapter in Part 7 would be designated “Chapter 7.2”. Chapters are further divided into sections, which, in turn, are normally divided into a number of paragraphs. Sections and paragraphs are numbered sequentially with the first number always being the number of the chapter in which the section or paragraph is contained (e.g., 7.2.1 would be the first section in Chapter 7.2, and “” would be the first paragraph in that section).
