ADR (Dangerous Goods by Road)
Consignors Required to Appoint a DGSA
ADR 188.8.131.52 has been in the regulations for a number of years, however under a derogation it has not been enforced, the derogation however expires on December 31st 2022. Therefore unless exempted by the existing provisions in ADR then a consignor of dangerous goods must, by January 1 2023, appoint a DGSA.
When sending hazardous goods by road and other means, the consignor must ensure that all goods conform to the requirements of ADR.
• Ascertaining that the dangerous goods are classified and authorised for carriage.
• Furnishing the carrier with appropriate information and transport documents.
• Using only approved packaging and containers which include markings where necessary.
All of our ADR examinations are computer-based which enables you to get your results straight away unless there are any technical issues in which we must revert to paper-based examinations.
Drivers that wish to renew their ADR license must attend a refresher course 6 weeks prior to the expiry date
