EMTEL ® / GBK Emergency Telephone Number

An emergency telephone number for dangerous goods transportation is mandatory in numerous countries including the USA and Canada, and it is required by many air carriers (IATA). According to regulation 1907/2006/ EC, this emergency number must be included on any safety data sheet.

GBK’s Emergency Telephone Number (EMTEL), offers 24/7 immediate telephone assistance, if there occur problems during transport or handling of dangerous goods/hazardous materials. This comprehensive service ensures assistance not only in the case of spillage, fire or contamination, but also medical advice for toxicological incidents. It also includes consultation around the appropriate disposal measures to be taken.

GBK-EMTEL makes it possible to comply with all international standards!
