A1--The maximum activity of special form radioactive material permitted in a type A package.
A2--The maximum activity of radioactive material, other than special form or low specific activity radioactive
material, permitted in a type A package. These values are either listed in A11.5 or may be derived using the
procedure in A11.4.
HArticle--A manufactured item, containing a hazardous material or substance, in a specific shape or design which
end use is dependent on the shape or design. The shape or design prevents loss of hazardous contents during normal
conditions of transport.
Atmospheric Pressure--Atmospheric pressure is 101.3kPa (14.7 psi).
Bag--A flexible packaging made of paper, plastic film textiles, woven material or other similar materials.
Bottle--An inner packaging having a neck of relatively smaller cross section than the body and an opening capable
of holding a closure for retention of the contents.
Box--A packaging with complete rectangular or polygonal faces made of metal, wood, plywood, reconstituted
wood, fiberboard, plastic, or other suitable material.
Bulk Packaging--A packaging, with no intermediate form of containment, that has a maximum capacity greater than
400 kg (882 lbs) or 450 L (119 gallons).
Class 1 (Explosives)--Any substance or article (including a device) which is designed to function by explosion (i.e.,
an extremely rapid release of gas and heat). Unless the substance or article is otherwise classed in table A4.1, the
term "explosive" may also refer to an item that is able to produce a chemical reaction within itself and is able to
function in a similar manner even if not designed to function by explosion. Explosives in Class 1 are divided into
six divisions as follows:
Division 1.1--Consists of explosives that have a mass explosion hazard. A mass explosion is one which
affects almost the entire load instantaneously.
Division 1.2--Consists of explosives that have a projection hazard but not a mass explosion hazard.
Division 1.3--Consists of explosives that have a fire hazard and a minor blast hazard or a minor projection
hazard (or both), but not a mass explosion hazard.
Division 1.4--Consists of explosive devices that present a minor explosion hazard. The explosive effects
are largely confined to the package and no projection of fragments of appreciable size or range is to be
expected. An external fire must not cause virtually instantaneous explosion of almost the entire contents of the
Division 1.5--Consists of very insensitive explosives. This division is comprised of substances which have
a mass explosion hazard but are so insensitive that there is very little probability of initiation or of transition
from burning to detonation under normal transportation conditions.
Division 1.6--Consists of extremely insensitive articles that do not have a mass explosion hazard. This
division is comprised of articles which contain only extremely insensitive detonating substances and which
