The full name of the dangerous package certificate is the “Identification Result Sheet for the Use of Outbound Dangerous Goods Transport Packaging”, or “Dangerous Package Certificate” for short, which is the authoritative certification document for dangerous goods packaging, issued by the Commodity Inspection Bureau (now merged into the customs system). Export declarations must be provided.

For the export of dangerous goods, the state stipulates that for the packaging of dangerous goods for export, the packaging production enterprise must apply to the inspection and quarantine machine for the performance evaluation of the packaging container, and issue the “Outbound Dangerous Goods Transport Packaging Performance Evaluation Result Sheet”, referred to as “performance sheet”.

All companies that make dangerous packages are to provide performance sheets for the production of dangerous goods for export, and use the identification of the packaging containers to the inspection and quarantine agencies, and issue the “outbound dangerous goods transportation packaging use evaluation results list”, which is what we call the dangerous packages.

Dangerous goods shall be provided with a dangerous package certificate and other relevant materials before the ship sails to declare dangerous goods to the Maritime Safety Administration and Port Authority. This is what we often say about making a declaration.
