Ralph,

NONH probably simply means "non-hazardous" for transport by rail or ground. That does not quite mesh with a WGK (Wassergefährdungsklassen) rating of 3, which means extreme hazard for discharges to bodies of water (https://webrigoletto.uba.de/rigoletto/public/language.do;jsessionid=FAECC31FFB403585E6A46BFC9ED569CE?language=english). Typically a marine pollutant has the Class 9 designation of Environmentally Hazardous Substance.

European regulations known as "RID" govern Dangerous Goods transport by rail; "ADR" is the corresponding road-transport directive.

 

PHMSA has some information at https://www.phmsa.dot.gov/international-program/adr-and-rid. No idea what NONH denotes, though. You might have to read through the directives (better you than me…)

Dan Kuespert

For random reasons, I'm reviewing an entry for Norbornane at
https://www.sigmaaldrich.com/catalog/product/aldrich/n32008?lang=en&region=US
and the safety information provided states:

Safety Information
Personal Protective Equipment  
Eyeshields, Gloves, type N95 (US), type P1 (EN143) respirator filter
RIDADR  NONH for all modes of transport
WGK Germany  3

No GHS information is provided.

I wonder if anyone know what the significance of "RIDADR NONH for all modes of transport" is?
A little googling didn't produce any useful information.

Thanks for any help with this.
