The European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road
The transportation of hazardous materials via road is regulated by international standards and subject to rigorous enforcement. A majority of European nations adhere to the Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR). While ADR provides a comprehensive framework, individual countries aligning with ADR enact specific safety protocols through their national legislation.
ADR serves the crucial role of ensuring that the transportation of dangerous goods across borders is unimpeded, granted that the transported goods, vehicles, and drivers adhere to the stipulated regulations. The inception of ADR dates back to 1968, and it is overseen by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). A significant aspect of ADR is its regular updates, occurring biennially, which incorporate advancements in technology to enhance the safety standards governing the transportation of hazardous materials by road.
