EN 15507:2017 (E) 4 Introduction This European Standard was developed to provide requirements and test procedures for comparative testing of polyethylene grades of high and medium molecular weight high density polyethylene, used for the manufacture of packaging and IBCs for the transport of dangerous goods. These specific material parameters relate to the test procedures described in the standards: EN ISO 13274:2013, Packaging — Transport packaging for dangerous goods — Plastics compatibility testing for packaging and IBCs (ISO 13274:2013 + Cor. 1:2014) EN ISO 16495:2013, Packaging — Transport packaging for dangerous goods — Test methods (ISO 16495:2013) The aim of the test methods described in this European Standard is to provide information for consideration as part of a selective test procedure. Selective testing procedures, are described in Clause 8 in the standards above and can eliminate or reduce the requirement to carry out the full test procedures described each time a new grade of high density polyethylene is used for the manufacture of the same design type. The test requirements and procedures in the standards above for plastics packaging and IBCs meet the provisions set out in the multimodal United Nations Recommendations on the transport of Dangerous Goods [1]. These UN Recommendations are given legal entity by the provisions of a series of modal agreements and regulations for the international transport of dangerous goods, details of which can be found in the Bibliography. These international agreements include: — the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous goods by Road (ADR), (covering most of Europe as well as parts of Asia and Northern Africa) [2]; — the International Civil Aviation Organization’s Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air (ICAO TIs), (world-wide) [3]; — the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code), (world-wide) [4]; — regulations concerning the International Carriage of dangerous Goods by Rail (RID), (covering most of Europe, parts of North Africa and the Middle East) [5]. The application of this standard will need to take account of the requirements of these international agreements and the relevant national regulations [6], [7] for domestic transport of dangerous goods. It is important to note that there will be certain modal differences from the UN Recommendations and that the schedule for revision of the UN Recommendations and modal provisions may lead to temporary inconsistencies with this European Standard, which is regularly updated to reflect the latest version of the UN Recommendations. This European Standard has been submitted for reference into the RID and/or the technical annexes of the ADR. SIST EN 15507:2018

EN 15507:2017 (E) 5 1 Scope This European Standard specifies material parameters, test requirements and procedures for the comparative testing of polyethylene grades of high molecular weight high density polyethylene (PE-HD-HMW) and medium molecular weight high density polyethylene (PE-HD-MMW), used for the manufacture of packaging and IBCs for the transport of dangerous goods. It is intended to be used in conjunction with selective testing for packaging for liquids. The standard is not intended to be used for comparative testing of recycled plastics material. NOTE This European Standard is intended to be used in conjunction with one or more of the international regulations set out in the Bibliography. 2 Normative references The following documents, in whole or in part, are normatively referenced in this document and are indispensable for its application.

As a minimum requirement, a test with water as the test medium in accordance with EN ISO 16495 shall be carried out for the packaging design type manufactured from the new polyethylene grade. The test requirements in 4.2 to 4.6 shall be met in the comparative testing of the polyethylene grade with existing approvals, (Material A), and the replacement polyethylene grade, (Material B).
