The Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) is the UK certification authority for dangerous goods packaging and some bulk containers. Before you order any packaging make sure that the supplier sends you:

  • a copy of the certificate
  • information (‘datasheets’) on how to use the packaging properly
  • any test reports for the selected packaging

Find details for packaging suppliers at the VCA website.

Contact the VCA if you need advice on dangerous goods packaging.
