reconditioning
Reconditioned packaging: means particular
  • a) Metall drums that are:
    • cleaned to original materials of construction, with all former contents, internal and external corrosion, and external coatings and labels removed;
    • restored to original shape and contour, with chimes (if any) straightened and sealed and all non-integral gaskets replaced; and
    • inspected after cleaning but before painting, with rejection of packagings with visible pitting, significant reduction in the material thickness, metal fatigue, damaged threads or closures or other significant defects;
  • b) Plastic drums and jerricans that:
    • are cleaned to original materials of construction, with all former contents, external coatings and labels removed;
    • have all non-integral gaskets replaced; and
    • are inspected after cleaning with rejection of packagings with visible damage such as tears, creases or cracks, or damaged threads or closures or other significant defects.
remanufacturing
Remanufactured packaging: means in particular
  • a) Metal drums:
    • are produced as a UN type complying with the requirements of Chapter 6.1 from a non-UN type;
    • are converted from one UN type complying with the requirements of Chapter 6.1 to another UN type; or
    • undergo the replacement of integral structural components (such as non-removable heads);
  • b) Plastic drums that:
    • are converted from one UN type another UN type (e.g. 1H1 to 1H2); or
    • undergo the replacement of integral structural components.
repairing
Repaired IBCs means a metal, rigid plastics or composite IBC that, as a result of impact or for ay other cause (e.g. corrosion, embrittlement or other evidence of reduced strength as compared to the design type) is restored so as to conform to the design type and to be able to withstand the design type tests. For the purposes of ADR, the replacement of the rigid inner receptacle of a composite IBC with a receptacle confirming to the original design type from the same manufacturer is considered repair. The bodies of rigid plastics IBCs and the inner receptables of composite IBCs are not repairable. Flexible IBCs are not repairable unless approved by the competent authority.
Ro-Ro Ships
Roll-on / Roll-off ships
routine maintenance
Routine maintenance of flexible IBCs:

The routine performance on plastics or textile flexible IBCs of operations, such as:

  • Cleaning; or
  • Replacement of non-integral components, such as non-integral liners and closure ties, which components confirming to the original manufacturer's specification;

provided that these operations do not adversely affect the containment function of the flexible IBC or alter the design type.

Routine maintenance of rigid IBCs:

The routine performance on metal, rigig plastics or composite IBCs of operations such as:

  • Cleaning;
  • Removal and reinstallation or replacement of body closures (including associated gaskets), or of service equipment, confirming to the original manufacturer's specifications, provided that the leaktightness of the IBC is verified; or
  • Restoration of structural equipment not directly performing a dangerous goods containment or discharge pressure rention function so as to conform to the design type (e.g. the straightening of legs or lifting attachments) provided that the contaiment function of the IBC is not affected.
