ADR stands for “Accord européen relatif au transport international des marchandises Dangereuses par Route”, which in German means “European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road”. ADR is an international agreement that sets the rules and regulations for the transport of dangerous goods by road in Europe.
The ADR convention system was developed to ensure safety in the transportation of dangerous goods and to minimize risks to people, the environment and property. It sets standards for the classification, packaging, labeling, documentation and transport of dangerous goods.
According to the ADR, dangerous goods are divided into different classes, such as explosive, flammable, toxic, corrosive or radioactive. Specific packaging, labeling and handling requirements apply to each class. The ADR also requires that drivers of vehicles transporting dangerous goods be specially trained and certified.
The ADR applies to the road transport of dangerous goods in the signatory countries, which include most European countries. It is regularly updated to take into account new findings and developments in the field of dangerous goods transport and to continuously improve safety standards.
