Watch the full table

Classes Nature / Characteristics Examples
Class 1
Any substance that produces an actual explosion or pyrotechnic effect, whether or not it is contained in a special device. Various types of firearms, ammunition, gunpowder, calcium carbide, missiles, illuminating flares, fireworks, firecrackers, dry ice
Class 2
Compressed gases, liquefied gases or gases dissolved under pressure
Refers to the following gases:
1. Permanent gas: refers to gases that cannot be liquefied at normal temperature.
2. Liquefied gas: refers to gases that become liquid when they are not pressurized at normal temperature.
3. Gases dissolved under pressure: refers to gases that can be dissolved into a solvent after being pressurized, and can be absorbed by a porous substance.
4. Frozen gas: refers to liquefied air, oxygen, etc.
1. Permanent and liquefied gases are usually pressurized. The pressure more than 2 kg/cm2 at a temperature of 21 oC, or more than 7 kg/cm2 at a temperature of 54 oC, is called high pressure.
2. Other chemical or physiological effects of this class of dangerous goods may change drastically and become flammable, toxic, comburent or corrosive, or have two or three properties at the same time.
3. This class of dangerous goods does not include those for medical use or lighters for personal use.
Canned gas, spray paint, high pressure gas cylinders (hydrogen, oxygen, propane, acetylene, liquefied petroleum gas, etc.)
Class 3
Flammable Liquids
Refers to those liquids, mixtures of liquids or a solution or suspension containing solids that tend to produce flammable gas and their flash point is lower than 61 oC proved by the closed cup test or the flash point is equivalent to 65.6 oC proved by open cup test. But exclude dangerous goods that fall into other classes. Note: The flash point of a flammable liquid is the lowest temperature at which the vapor released by the liquid mixes with air to form a mixture that can ignite. Mineral oil, gasoline, kerosene, benzene, toluene (turpentine), methanol, ethanol (except alcoholic beverages below 70%), isopropanol, acetone, ether, paint, thinner, carbon disulfide
Class 4
Flammable solids, natural substances, substances that release flammable gases in contact with water
1. Refers to a solid that has the property that tends to be ignited by an external source of fire such as a spark or flame and is combustible.
2. Refers to the solid or liquid tends to self-heat and ignite.
3. Refers to solids or liquids that emits flammable gas when in contact with water or air, and in some cases can ignite on its own.
Matches (excluding matches for personal used), activated carbon, white phosphorus, yellow phosphorus, aluminum powder, phosphorus sulfide, calcium phosphide, sodium, potassium, magnesium powder
Class 5
Oxidizing Agents and Organic Peroxides
1. Refers to the substance that is not flammable itself, but tend to ignite flammable substance and generate oxygen in the fire to promote the fire.
2. Refers to the substance most part of which is flammable, may cause the same effect like oxidants, prone to explosive decomposition. It, in solid or liquid state, can react with other substances to create danger. Most of this class of goods can burn quickly and are sensitive to shock or friction.
Remarks: The common property of this class of dangerous goods is that it is easy to release oxygen and promote the ignition of other substances.
Sodium nitrate, ammonium nitrate, bleach (powder), chlorate, perchlorate, phosphorus chloride, sodium peroxide, barium peroxide, nitrocellulose, dinitrobenzene, dinitrotoluene, trinitrotoluene , dinitrophenol, trinitrophenol, ethylene glycol diuitrate, nitroglycerin, pentoxide nitrogen
Class 6
Toxic substances and Infectious Substances"
1. Refers to a substance that may cause death or serious injury when it is swallowed by people, injected into body, or in contact with the skin.
2. Refers to microorganisms that cause a disease.
Arsenic, arsenic, cyanide, methyl bromide, insecticides, herbicides, pesticides, medical waste, viral viruses, bacteria
Class 7
Radioactive Substances
Refers to substances that release free radiation via Spontaneous fission.
Remarks: Exclude the radioactive substances as provided in Article 5 of the “Safety Regulations for the Transportation of Radioactive Material” formulated by the Atomic Energy Council, Executive Yuan.
Uranium, plutonium, radium
Class 8
Corrosive Substances
Refers to substances that cause serious damage when contacting with biological tissue or damage to other objects or vehicles during leakage. Strong acid, strong alkali, mercury, lead acid, battery
Class 9
Refers to substances that fail to fall into class 1 to 8 and are less dangerous to carry, but have shown or may have shown to be dangerous and suitable for inclusion in this class. Other dangerous goods that tend to be dangerous for human or animals (serum, vaccine, blood of umbilical cord, etc.)

Article 20 of the Railway Transportation Rules

Passengers are not allowed to bring dangerous goods, coffins, corpses, animals that are not permitted by the railway authorities, and items that are harmful or harassing to passengers or railways, except for police dogs, guide dogs and guide dogs undergoing training carried by professional trainers.
When a passenger violates the provisions of the preceding paragraph, the railway agency may cause the passenger to exit the station, train or railway area.
