Dangerous Goods (ADR)

ADR (Accord Dangereux Routier) is the European Agreement which sets out the rules governing the movement by road of dangerous goods throughout the EU. They are very strict and exist to protect the public, drivers and the environment from the harmful effect of dangerous substances. It is essential that all ADR hauliers and drivers are fully aware of the rules on the carriage of dangerous goods. The consequences of getting it wrong can include criminal prosecution and a hearing before the Traffic Commissioner.
