It takes into consideration of the transport vehicle, the consignment procedure, transportation operations as well as other noticeable problems.    

Compared with JT 617-2004, the JT/T 617 gives a detailed description of requirements in it. Besides, to better give guidance to the transport of dangerous goods, JT/T 617 also adds some new contents, including the requirements for international intermodal transport, the training of employees involved in dangerous goods, high risk dangerous goods, limited quantity and excepted quantity.

To support the transport of dangerous goods in limited quantities, expected quantities, etc., the government still needs to release supporting documents for the compliance of dangerous goods transportation.
