The current WA Resolution, Uniform Labeling Of Hazardous Goods has been posted on our off-site forums at:
General Assembly Resolution At Vote
Uniform Labeling Of Hazardous Goods
A resolution to reduce barriers to free trade and commerce.
Category: Free Trade
The World Assembly,
Praising the work already done to unify safety standards for commercial transport, as well to establish regulations for the cleanup of hazardous spills and leaks,
Aware that inconsistent requirements for the labeling of hazardous material creates legal, technical, and practical obstacles to free trade,
Concerned that the current lack of regulation allows for inadequate markings, markings which vary by nation or even province, and markings which are not internationally understandable,
Conscious that confusion regarding hazardous goods increases the danger and likelihood of an accident during transportation,
Troubled by accidental spills impact on free trade through the full or partial closure of roadways, ports, and other trade routes,
Noting that when accidents occur involving hazardous materials, first responders' optimal actions depend on the precise nature of the hazardous good, particularly with regards to flammability, reactivity, and toxicity, and that improper actions of first responders can increase damage to trade infrastructure, and puts the lives of those in the vicinity of the accident at risk,
Entrusts the International Transport Safety Committee (ITSC) with creating a labeling system to communicate the important risks and dangers of materials in a manner that is both noticeable and as universally recognizable as possible;
Further entrusts the ITSC to establish vessel specific standards as to the optimal size, number, and placement of warning symbols;
Charges the ITSC with the responsibility of periodically reviewing the labeling system for modernization or other improvements, while balancing the benefits of consistency;
Mandates nations adhere to the ITSC's standards when transporting hazardous materials across international borders, except where compliance interferes with national security;
Empowers the ITSC to levy punitive measures on responsible organizations or government bodies for non-compliance, including mandatory training or fines (the proceeds of which shall go to the WA General Fund);
Urges vessels also adhere to the ITSC labeling guidelines for the transportation of hazardous materials in non-mandated situations;
Requires ITSC disseminated training materials be given to relevant professionals and other interested parties;
Suggests the display of ITSC labels in areas used for the long term storage of hazardous goods.

Failure is an opportunity.
If you blame someone else,
there is no end to the blame.
Therefore the Master
fulfills her own obligations
and corrects her own mistakes.
She does what she needs to do
and demands nothing of others.
I remember this one too. Thus i will not submit an answer.

If a country is governed wisely,
its inhabitants will be content.
They enjoy the labor of their hands
and don't waste time inventing
Since they dearly love their homes,
they aren't interested in travel.
There may be a few wagons and boats,
but these don't go anywhere.
There may be an arsenal of weapons,
but nobody ever uses them.
People enjoy their food,
take pleasure in being with their families,
spend weekends working in their gardens,
delight in the doings of the neighborhood.
And even though the next country is so close
that people can hear its roosters crowing and its dogs barking,
they are content to die of old age
without ever having gone to see it.
