Guidelines DGSA Annual Report EASA

According to sub‐sections 1.8.3.3 of the European Agreements ADR, RID and ADN, the Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (hereinafter “DGSA”) has the duty to prepare an annual report to the management of his undertaking or to a local public authority, as appropriate, on the undertakings of their activities in the carriage of dangerous goods. ADR, RID and ADN do not specify the content of the annual report; some parties who are contracted to ADR, RID and ADN have specifications in their national legislation. EASA is of the opinion that it may be valuable for the DGSA to have a template for an annual report. In consequence EASA has created a template which respects and harmonises what is requested by the dangerous goods associations in the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Liechtenstein, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

This template reflects the DGSA’s duties according to sub‐sections 1.8.3.3 of the ADR, RID and ADN, and it contains what is considered by EASA to be the minimum content of a DGSA’s annual report.

The annual report is addressed to the management of the undertaking; as a consequence the DGSA’s annual report should enable management to determine whether the dangerous goods of their undertaking are being dealt with in a manner that is compliant with ADR, RID and ADN.

An annual report should cover a period of twelve months, although there is no necessity for this period to be identical to a calendar year, i.e. January to December.

The boxes 1 to 9 of the template are self‐explanatory and simple to use.

GHS Rev. 8 Luglio 2019 (Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals)

Sistema mondiale armonizzato di classificazione ed etichettatura delle sostanze chimiche (GHS): Ottava edizione riveduta

Il GHS affronta la classificazione delle sostanze chimiche per i tipi di pericolo e vuole armonizzare tali tipi di pericoli, comprese etichette e schede di sicurezza.

Esso mira a garantire che le informazioni sui rischi fisici e la tossicità da sostanze chimiche siano le migliori possibili per l a tutela della salute umana e l’ambiente durante la manipolazione, trasporto e uso.

Il GHS fornisce anche una base per l’armonizzazione di norme e regolamenti sulle sostanze chimiche a livello nazionale, regionale e mondiale.

Questa ottava edizione rivista del GHS contiene varie disposizioni nuove o rivedute, tra cui, tra l’altro:

[alert]- nuovi criteri di classificazione, elementi di comunicazione dei pericoli, logiche decisionali e indicazioni per le sostanze chimiche sotto pressione;
– nuove disposizioni per l’uso di dati in vitro/ex vivo e metodi non sperimentali per valutare la corrosione e l’irritazione cutanea;
– emendamenti vari per chiarire i criteri di classificazione per la tossicità specifica per organi bersaglio;
– dichiarazioni precauzionali riviste e ulteriormente razionalizzate e una revisione editoriale delle sezioni 2 e 3 dell’allegato 3;
– nuovi esempi di pittogrammi precauzionali per trasmettere la frase precauzionale “Tenere fuori dalla portata dei bambini”;
– un nuovo esempio nell’allegato 7 relativo all’etichettatura di set o kit; e
– guida per l’identificazione dei pericoli di esplosione della polvere e la necessità di valutazione dei rischi, prevenzione, mitigazione e comunicazione dei pericoli.[/alert]

Guidance duties Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA)

Guidance on the duties of a Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA)

This guidance is intended to inform Dangerous Goods Safety Advisers (DGSAs) and those undertakings which need to appoint a DGSA, about the roles and responsibilities of a DGSA. A DGSA has specific duties under the European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR), which will be detailed in this document. An undertaking may need to appoint a DGSA if it is involved in the following activities:

– Consigning dangerous goods for transport including, including as appropriate, loading, packing and filling (consignors).
– Operation of road vehicles carrying dangerous goods, including as appropriate, packing, loading, filling and unloading (carriers).

The ADR specifies the responsibilities of a Safety Adviser in Chapter 1.8.3 The core responsibilities of a Safety Adviser are as follows:

– Advising undertakings on the safe transport of dangerous goods by road.
– Monitoring the undertakings compliance with dangerous goods regulations.
– Preparing an annual report about the activities of the undertaking related to the transport dangerous goods.
– Investigating any accidents or infringements of regulations and preparing reports.
– Monitoring the provision of training and advice to any staff involved in the transport of dangerous goods.

The duties of those who accept the appointment of DGSA for an undertaking are mandatory. A DGSA or employer does not have the discretion to “cherry pick” the duties or roles which they must observe and fulfil. The role of a DGSA is such that fulfilling the responsibilities as detailed in the ADR attracts a legal duty of care for the DGSA. A regulatory body or competent authority in any of the EU or non-EU member states who are signatories to the ADR may require the identity of the DGSA acting for an undertaking. It is your duty as an undertaking involved in the carriage, loading or unloading of dangerous goods, or as an appointed DGSA, to comply in a timely fashion with any lawful request of any such regulatory body.

Eliminata la parola “Europeo” dal titolo dell’ADR

Eliminata la parola “Europeo” dal titolo dell’ADR (Proposta senza obiezioni)

Working Party on the Transport of Dangerous Goods
104th session Geneva, 15-17 May 2018

Punto 8 dell’ordine del giorno provvisorio – altra attività

Procedura di revisione del titolo di ADR 

1. Nella sua 103a sessione (6-10 Novembre 2017), il gruppo di lavoro ha esaminato la proposta di sopprimere il termine “europeo” dal titolo di ADR.

2. È stato osservato che il termine “europeo” nell’attuale titolo dell’Accordo europeo relativo al trasporto internazionale di merci pericolose su strada (ADR) non è conforme alle condizioni per la partecipazione di Stati non europei all’ADR, come, conformemente al suo articolo 6, l’ADR è aperto alla partecipazione degli Stati membri della Commissione economica per l’Europa e degli Stati ammessi alla Commissione a titolo consultivo a norma del paragrafo 8 del mandato della Commissione.

L’ADR è inoltre aperto a quegli Stati che possono partecipare ad alcune attività della Commissione economica per l’Europa conformemente al paragrafo 11 del mandato della Commissione aderendovi dopo la sua entrata in vigore.

3. Non c’erano obiezioni alla proposta.

Il gruppo ha chiesto al segretariato di consultare nuovamente l’ufficio degli affari giuridici del segretariato delle Nazioni Unite sulla procedura da seguire e di presentare una versione aggiornata del documento ECE/TRANS/2010/2 alla 104a sessione.
