Your value added ADR consultant!

When do you need an ADR consultant?

The Transport of Dangerous Goods Act doesn’t stipulate only the obligations of drivers but of all participants in the transport of dangerous goods. This means that each company which is engaged in road transport or packaging, loading or unloading of dangerous goods connected with transport, should have a safety consultant.

If dangerous goods are supplied to your courtyard as an ADR shipment (cargo vehicles with orange signs), you as the receiver or the unloader of dangerous goods have certain obligations that arise from the mentioned law. You also have certain obligations as the filler, loader or sender of dangerous goods. Your case, however, may be different, but you still have to fulfil your obligations.

Frequently asked questions



What does ADR mean?

The acronym ADR is derived from the European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road.

ADR is to be used in all countries that signed this Agreement. Goods are classified as dangerous for transport if they are granted an UN number. Transport data (e.g. UN number, danger label, package group etc.) are listed in section 14 of the Safety Data Sheet.

What does the transport of dangerous goods per exemptions mean?

  • Dangerous goods packed in limited quantities (small packaging units), section 3.4 ADR
  • Exemptions related to quantities per transport unit, section 1.1.3.6 ADR

When is a product classified as dangerous goods in the sense of transport regulations?

Transport information can be found in section 14 of the Safety Data Sheet. Dangerous goods have a certain UN number (e.g. a dye with a flashpoint under 60°C is allocated under UN 1263). Besides the UN number, other transport data are listed in section 14 required to properly mark the packaging and prepare the relevant transport documentation.

Is ADR transport required to dispatch 1 carton of dye packed in 2.5 L packaging with a flashpoint 56°C?

According to the ADR, dye is classified as dangerous goods with UN 1263. Since it has a flashpoint of 56°C, it is classified under the packaging group III. This UN number has a limited quantity of 5 L (column 7a in Table 3.2 ADR). Since the dye is packed in a packaging containing less than 5 L, exemptions can be used which can be found in section 3.4 of the ADR. It is important to put a danger label for limited quantities (LQ) on the carton and that the gross volume does not exceed 30kg. ADR transport is thus not needed to dispatch.

How to calculate points according to the section 1.1.3.6 of ADR?

We would like to transport:

  • 5 handles of each 10 L dye with No. UN 1263, transport group 3 (the quantity must be multiplied by the factor 1)
  • 4 handles of each 20 L solvent with No. UN 1993, transport group 2 (quantity must be multiplied by the factor 3)

Calculation: 5×10×1 + 4×20×3 = 290

Since the number of points is lower than 1000, an exemption can used to transport smaller quantities of dangerous goods and ADR transport is not required.
