Like other goods, dangerous goods have to be transported and sometimes cover long distances by ship, train, plane and above all, by truck. For road transport, the ADR*, an international agreement on the transport of dangerous goods by road is in place since September 30, 1957. This includes special regulations with regard to packaging, load securing and labeling of dangerous goods.
Particularly strict regulations apply to dangerous goods and the manufacturers of their transport packaging – to protect the packaged goods, to protect the environment and all of us. In addition to the ADR, there are some other transport carrier-specific regulations and UN recommendations that must be observed in accordance with the current legal situation.
I also issue the relevant UN approvals.
Only tested and officially approved packaging may be used as hazardous goods packaging.
* Short for „Accord relatif au transport international des marchandises Dangereuses par Route"
