The European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Inland Waterways (ADN) done at Geneva on 26 May 2000 under the auspices of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the Central Commission for Navigation on the Rhine (CCNR) entered into force on 29 February 2008. ADN consists of a main legal text and annexed Regulations and aims at: - ensuring a high level of safety of international carriage of dangerous goods by inland waterways; - contributing effectively to the protection of the environment, by preventing any pollution resulting from accidents or incidents during such carriage; and - facilitating transport operations and promoting international trade in dangerous goods. The Regulations annexed to the ADN contain provisions concerning dangerous substances and articles, provisions concerning their carriage in packages and in bulk on board inland navigation vessels or tank vessels, as well as provisions concerning the construction and operation of such vessels. They also address requirements and procedures for inspections, the issue of certificates of approval, recognition of classification societies, monitoring, and training and examination of experts.
