Examples of products that might be regulated as dangerous goods (Hazmat)

Dangerous goods (also called Hazmat) are substances or materials that might pose a risk while storing, handling or transporting because they contain flammable, pressurised, corrosive or otherwise harmful substances.

To learn more about dangerous goods, see the Dangerous goods identification guide. You can also watch the following videos in Seller University:
