Guidelines

General guideline for the calculation of risks in the transport of dangerous goods by road

 

At its 84th and 85th sessions (May and October 2008), the Working Party on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (WP.15) adopted a general guideline for the calculation of risks in the transport of dangerous goods by road (see ECE/TRANS/WP.15/197, paragraphs 27 to 30 and ECE/TRANS/WP.15/199, paragraphs 52 and 53).

The general guideline provides a useful tool for the competent authorities to determine and justify the transport restrictions according to Chapter 1.9 of ADR which apply in their territory.
