                                   (iv) when inverted, will not release dangerous goods;
                               (b) The means of containment is loaded and secured on the means of transport in such a way as to prevent, under normal conditions of
                                      transport, damage to the means of containment or to the means of transport that could lead to an accidental release of the dangerous
