Abstract:

The first version of this report was prepared in 1966 by the Committee on Hazardous Materials, a committee in the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Technology of the National Research Council, in response to a request from the Coast Guard for a systematic guide to rating the relative hazards of chemicals and other materials shipped in bulk over the waterways. This 1975 report reflects major changes which should improve the system. It is felt that the study, though of restricted scope, may be of interest to other groups concerned with assessing hazardous aspects of chemicals, and that future studies of this nature will benefit from criticism of the present effort. The Committee will welcome any general suggestions or specific criticism that will improve the usefulness of such a hazard-rating guide.
