Limited quantities

Limited quantities (LQ) stand for the quantity of hazardous material that are considered less dangerous thanks to the packaging. If articles have several individual packagings or an outer packaging, e.g. a cardboard box, the danger of the substance is significantly lower, which is why less stringent regulations apply. However, a maximum weight of 30 kg per outer packaging must not be exceeded. In addition, labeling by means of a so-called “LQ label” is required.
