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.

Hazard identification numbers 2019 (Kemler Codes)

Hazard identification numbers 2019 (Kemler Codes)

CHAPTER 5.3 PLACARDING AND MARKING OF CONTAINERS, BULK CONTAINERS, MEGCs, MEMUs, TANK-CONTAINERS, PORTABLE TANKS AND VEHICLES Meaning of hazard identification numbers The hazard identification number consists of two or three figures. In general, the figures indicate the

following hazards:

2 Emission of gas due to pressure or to chemical reaction

3 Flammability of liquids (vapours) and gases or self-heating liquid

4 Flammability of solids or self-heating solid

5 Oxidizing (fire-intensifying) effect

6 Toxicity or risk of infection

7 Radioactivity

8 Corrosivity

9 Risk of spontaneous violent reaction

NOTE: The risk of spontaneous violent reaction within the meaning of figure 9 include the possibility following from the nature of a substance of a risk of explosion, disintegration and polymerization reaction following the release of considerable heat or flammable and/or toxic gases.

Doubling of a figure indicates an intensification of that particular hazard.

Where the hazard associated with a substance can be adequately indicated by a single figure, this is followed by zero.

The following combinations of figures, however, have a special meaning: 22, 323, 333, 362, 382, 423, 44, 446, 462, 482, 539, 606, 623, 642, 823, 842, 90 and 99, see below.
