COMPOSITE LIST OF HAZARD PROFILES OF SUBSTANCES CARRIED BY SHIPS, 1978

This 1978 list of "hazard profiles" gives the hazard ratings of several hundred chemical and other substances in terms of (a) bioaccumulation, (b) damage to living resources, (c) hazard to human health, oral intake, (d) hazard to human health--skin contact and inhalation, and (e) reduction of amenities. It updates the 1977 list issued under cover of IMCO circular BCH/Circ. 5 dated 13 Apr. 1977, and also includes the hazard profiles of additional substances as approved by GESAMP in May/June 1978. The present composite list therefore supersedes earlier ones. The covering letter explains the background to the compilation of these lists. Order frm BSRA as No. 49,538.
