Dangerous Goods Customs from UK to India

Transporting hazardous materials to India requires strict compliance with legal requirements and thorough documentation. Important documents include the Dangerous Goods Note (DGN), which details the hazardous materials being shipped and ensures they meet safety regulations. Additionally, Safety Data Sheets (SDS) provide information on these materials’ properties and handling instructions.

Depending on the type of cargo, specific permits may be required to adhere to Indian regulations. Proper packaging and labelling are essential; labels must indicate the type of hazard and comply with international standards. Accurate customs declarations are necessary to avoid delays and ensure smooth processing at both UK and Indian borders.

At SLG, our customs clearance specialists take care of all necessary documentation, ensuring compliance and facilitating a smooth customs process.
