Eurotunnels 2015 ADR Dangerous Goods Regulated
The practical guide Version: EN, FR, DE
The Channel Tunnel has been designed to be one of the safest transport systems known to date.
Eurotunnel’s policy on the carriage of ADR regulated goods is therefore designed to ensure the safety of its customers and staff, and the integrity of the Tunnel.
This policy has been produced in close collaboration with industry and with relevant trade and professional bodies.
The carriage of goods classified as hazardous through the Channel Tunnel must comply with ADR (European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road).
ADR regulated goods definitions are subject to the 2015 revision of the ADR regulations.
Declarations have to be made using the 2015 ADR revisions from 1st July 2015.
Eurotunnel Freight will accept, restrict or refuse goods on the basis of ADR definitions.
This ADR regulated goods policy has been decreed by a By-Law in the UK and an Arrêté Ministériel in France and forms an integral part of Eurotunnel.s Conditions of Carriage.
The carriage of Dangerous Goods must also comply with Eurotunnel.s own regulations as described in this document, which are more stringent than those in ADR, to reflect the specific safety characteristics of the Channel Tunnel infrastructure.
The carrier is responsible for ensuring that the goods he is carrying comply with these regulations. Furthermore it is also the carrier.s responsibility to provide the compulsory documentation, including for vehicles travelling under the provisions of ADR chapter 188.8.131.52. Goods, which are transported under the conditions (packaging, weight, etc.) laid down in the respective Chapter (e.g. 3.4 Limited Quantities and 3.5 Excepted Quantities) of ADR are authorised for transit via the Eurotunnel Freight service, under the terms of ADR.
Eurotunnel Freight reserves the right to authorise or refuse carriage of ADR regulated goods via Eurotunnel Freight, irrespective of their type, origin and / or destination.
