This paper proposes that certain explosives of Division 1.4 are added to the indicative list of high consequence dangerous goods. High consequence dangerous goods have been defined in Chapter 1.4 of the UN Model Regulations (14th edition) as those “which have the potential for misuse in a terrorist incident and which may, as a result, produce serious consequences such as mass casualties or mass destruction”. (...) Designation of explosives as high consequence dangerous goods means that the security provisions in section 1.4.3 of the Model Regulations, the requirement for carriers, consignors and others engaged in the transport of high consequence dangerous goods to adopt, implement and comply with a security plan that addresses at least the elements specified in 1.4.3.2.2, apply. 3. (...) Designation of these articles as high consequence dangerous goods will resolve this anomaly. 9.
