Article 1

Scope

1.  
This Directive shall apply to the transport of dangerous goods by road, by rail or by inland waterway within or between Member States, including the activities of loading and unloading, the transfer to or from another mode of transport and the stops necessitated by the circumstances of the transport.

It shall not apply to the transport of dangerous goods:

(a) 

by vehicles, wagons or vessels belonging to or under the responsibility of the armed forces;

(b) 

by seagoing vessels on maritime waterways forming part of inland waterways;

(c) 

by ferries only crossing an inland waterway or harbour; or

wholly performed within the perimeter of an enclosed area.

2.  
Annex II, Section II.1, shall not apply to Member States that do not have a railway system, for as long as no such system is established within their territory.
3.  

Within one year of the entry into force of this Directive, Member States may decide not to apply Annex III, Section III.1, for one of the following reasons:

(a) 

they have no inland waterways;

(b) 

their inland waterways are not linked, by inland waterway, to the waterways of other Member States; or

(c) 

no dangerous goods are transported on their inland waterways.

If a Member State decides not to apply the provisions of Annex III, Section III.1, it shall notify that decision to the Commission, which shall inform the other Member States.

4.  

Member States may lay down specific safety requirements for the national and international transport of dangerous goods within their territory as regards:

(a) 

the transport of dangerous goods by vehicles, wagons or inland waterway vessels not covered by this Directive;

(b) 

where justified, the use of prescribed routes including the use of prescribed modes of transport;

(c) 

special rules for the transport of dangerous goods in passenger trains.

They shall inform the Commission of such provisions and their justifications.

The Commission shall inform the other Member States accordingly.

5.  
Member States may regulate or prohibit, strictly for reasons other than safety during transport, the transport of dangerous goods within their territory.

Article 2

Definitions

6. 

‘vessel’ shall mean any inland waterway or seagoing vessel.

Article 3

General provisions

1.  
Without prejudice to Article 6, dangerous goods shall not be transported in so far as this is prohibited by Annex I, Section I.1, Annex II, Section II.1, or Annex III, Section III.1.
2.  
Without prejudice to the general rules on market access or the rules generally applicable to the transport of goods, the transport of dangerous goods shall be authorised, subject to compliance with the conditions laid down in Annex I, Section I.1, Annex II, Section II.1, and Annex III, Section III.1.

Article 4

Third countries

The transport of dangerous goods between Member States and third countries shall be authorised in so far as it complies with the requirements of the ADR, RID or ADN, unless otherwise indicated in the Annexes.

Member States may on grounds of transport safety apply more stringent provisions, with the exception of construction requirements, concerning the national transport of dangerous goods by vehicles, wagons and inland waterway vessels registered or put into circulation within their territory.
2.  
If, in the event of an accident or incident within its territory, a Member State considers that the safety provisions applicable have been found to be insufficient to limit the hazards involved in transport operations and if there is an urgent need to take action, that Member State shall, at the planning stage, notify the Commission of the measures which it proposes to take.

Acting in accordance with the procedure referred to in Article 9(2), the Commission shall decide whether to authorise the implementation of the measures in question and the duration of that authorisation.

Article 6

Derogations

1.  
Member States may authorise the use of languages other than those provided for in the Annexes for transport operations performed within their territories.
2.  
(a) 

Provided that safety is not compromised, Member States may request derogations from Annex I, Section I.1, Annex II, Section II.1, and Annex III, Section III.1, for the transport within their territories of small quantities of certain dangerous goods, with the exception of substances having a medium or high level of radioactivity, provided that the conditions for such transport are no more stringent than the conditions set out in those Annexes.

(b) 

Provided that safety is not compromised, Member States may also request derogations from Annex I, Section I.1, Annex II, Section II.1, and Annex III, Section III.1, for the transport of dangerous goods within their territory in the case of:

(i) 

local transport over short distances; or

(ii) 

local transport by rail on particular designated routes, forming part of a defined industrial process and being closely controlled under clearly specified conditions.

The Commission shall examine in each case whether the conditions laid down in subparagraphs (a) and (b) have been met and shall decide, in accordance with the procedure referred to in Article 9(2), whether to authorise the derogation and to add it to the list of national derogations set out in Annex I, Section I.3, Annex II, Section II.3, or Annex III, Section III.3.

3.  
Derogations under paragraph 2 shall be valid for a period not exceeding six years from the date of authorisation, such period to be fixed in the authorisation decision.

Derogations shall be applied without discrimination.

4.  
If a Member State requests the extension of an authorisation for a derogation, the Commission shall review the derogation in question.

If no amendment to Annex I, Section I.1, Annex II, Section II.1, or Annex III, Section III.1, affecting the subject matter of the derogation has been adopted, the Commission, acting in accordance with the procedure referred to in Article 9(2), shall renew the authorisation for a further period not exceeding six years from the date of authorisation, such period to be fixed in the authorisation decision.

Based on Article 6(2)(a) of Directive 2008/68/EC

BE Belgium

RO-a-BE-2

Subject: Transport of uncleaned empty containers having contained products of different classes.

Reference to Annex I, Section I.1, to Directive 2008/68/EC: 5.4.1.1.6

Content of the national legislation: Indication on the transport document ‘uncleaned empty packages having contained products of different classes’.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Derogation 6-97

RO-a-BE-3

Subject: Adoption of RO-a-HU-2.

Initial reference to the national legislation: derogation 4-2004

Expiry date: 31 December 2028

RO-a-BE-4

Subject: exemption of all ADR requirements for the national transport of maximum 1 000 used ionic smoke detectors from private households to the treatment facility in Belgium via the collection points foreseen in the scenario for the selective collection of smoke detectors. Reference to Annex I, Section I.1, to Directive 2008/68/EC: all requirements

Content of the national legislation: The domestic use of ionic smoke detectors is not submitted to regulatory control from a radiological point of view once the smoke detector is of an approved type. The transport of these smoke detectors to the end-user is also exempted from ADR requirements. (see 1.7.1.4. e)).

Directive 2002/96/EC (on waste electric and electronic equipment) requires the selective collection of used smoke detectors for treatment of the circuit boards and, for the ionic smoke detectors, to take out the radioactive substances. To make this selective collection possible a scenario has been developed to stimulate private households to bring their used smoke detectors to a collection point from which these detectors can be carried to a treatment facility sometimes via a second collection point or an intermediate storage place.

At the collection points metal packaging will be made available wherein a maximum of 1 000 smoke detectors can be packed. From these points one such package with the smoke detectors can be transported together with other wastes to an intermediate storage or the treatment facility. The package will be labelled with the word ‘smoke detector’.

Initial reference to the national legislation: scenario for the selective collection of smoke detectors makes part of the conditions for removal of approved instruments foreseen in Article 3.1.d.2 of the royal decree of 20 July 2001: the general radiation protection regulation

Comments: This derogation is necessary to make the selective collection of used ionic smoke detectors possible.

Expiry date: 30 June 2026

DK Denmark

RO-a-DK-2

Subject: Road transport of packaging containing explosive substances and packaging containing detonators on the same vehicle.

Reference to Annex I, Section I.1, to Directive 2008/68/EC: 7.5.2.2

Content of the Annex to the Directive: Mixed packing provisions.

Content of the national legislation: The rules in the ADR must be observed when transporting dangerous goods by road.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Bekendtgørelse nr. 729 of 15. august 2001 om vejtransport of farligt gods § 4, stk. l

Comments: There is a practical need for being able to pack explosive substances together with detonators on the same vehicle when transporting such goods from where they are stored to the workplace and back again.

When the Danish legislation concerning the transport of dangerous goods is amended, the Danish authorities will allow such transport under the following conditions:

1. 

Not more than 25 kg explosive substances under group D are being transported.

2. 

Not more than 200 pieces of detonators under group B are being transported.

3. 

Detonators and explosive substances must be packed separately in UN-certified packaging in accordance with the rules set out in Directive 2000/61/EC amending Directive 94/55/EC.

4. 

The distance between packaging that contains detonators and packaging that contains explosive substances must be at least 1 metre. This distance has to be observed even after a sudden application of the brakes. Packaging containing explosive substances and packaging containing detonators must be placed in a way that makes it possible quickly to remove them from the vehicle.

5. 

All other rules concerning the transport of dangerous goods by road must be observed.

Expiry date: 30 June 2026

RO-a-DK-3

Subject: Road transport of packaging and articles containing wastes or residues of dangerous goods of certain classes from households and enterprises for the purpose of disposal.

Reference to Annex I, Section I.1, to Directive 2008/68/EC: Parts and chapters 2, 3, 4.1, 5.1, 5.2, 5.4, 6, 8.1 and 8.2.

Content of the Annex to the Directive: Classification provisions, special provisions, packing provisions, consignment procedures, requirements for the construction and testing of packagings, general requirements concerning transport units and equipment on board and training requirements.

Content of the national legislation: Inner packaging and articles containing waste or residues of dangerous goods of certain classes collected from private households or enterprises for the purpose of disposal may be packed together in certain outer packaging and/or overpacks and carried under special consignment procedures including special packing and marking restrictions. The quantity of dangerous goods per inner packaging, per outer packaging and/or per transport unit is restricted.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Bekendtgørelse nr. 818 af 28. juni 2011 om vejtransport af farligt gods § 4, stk. 3

Comments: It is not possible for waste managers to apply all provisions of Annex I, Section I.1 to Directive 2008/68/EC when wastes with residual amounts of dangerous goods have been collected from private households and enterprises to be carried for disposal. The waste is usually contained in packagings that have been sold in retail.

Expiry date: 1 January 2025

DE Germany

RO-a-DE-1

Subject: Mixed packing and mixed loading of car parts with classification 1.4G together with certain dangerous goods (n4).

Initial reference to the national legislation: Gefahrgut-Ausnahmeverordnung – GGAV 2002 vom 6.11.2002 (BGBl. IS. 4350); Ausnahme 28.

Comments: The exemption is needed to provide fast delivery of safety car parts depending on local demand. Due to the wide product range storage of these products using local garages is not common.

Expiry date: 30 June 2027

RO-a-DE-2

Subject: Exemption from the requirement to carry a transport document and a shippers’ declaration for certain quantities of dangerous goods as defined in 1.1.3.6 (n1).

Reference to Annex I, Section I.1, to Directive 2008/68/EC: 5.4.1.1.1 and 5.4.1.1.6

Content of the Annex to the Directive: contents of the transport document.

Content of the national legislation: For all classes except Class 7: no transport document is needed if the quantity of the goods transported does not exceed the quantities given in 1.1.3.6.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Gefahrgut-Ausnahmeverordnung – GGAV 2002 vom 6.11.2002 (BGBl. IS. 4350); Ausnahme 18.

Comments: The information provided by the marking and labelling of packages is considered sufficient for national transport, as a transport document is not always appropriate where local distribution is involved.

Reference to Annex I, Section I.1, to Directive 2008/68/EC: 5.4

Content of the Annex to the Directive: Requirement for transport document.

Content of the national legislation: A transport document is not required for the carriage of pesticides of ADR Classes 3 and 6.1, where the quantity of dangerous goods being carried does not exceed the quantities set out in 1.1.3.6 of the ADR.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Regulation 82(9) of the ‘Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road Regulations 2004’

Content of the Annex to the Directive: The marking of the vehicles, the documentation to be carried and the provisions concerning transport equipment and transport operations.

Content of the national legislation: Exemption from the requirements of 5.3, 5.4, 7 and Annex B of the ADR for cylinders of gases, used as dispensing agents for beverages, where these cylinders of gases are carried on the same vehicle as the beverages (for which they are to be used).

Initial reference to the national legislation: Proposed amendment to ‘Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road Regulations, 2004’

Subject: Exemption, for national transport within Ireland, from the construction and testing requirements for receptacles, and their provisions on use, contained in 6.2 and 4.1 of the ADR, for cylinders and pressure drums of gases of Class 2 that have undergone a multimodal transport journey, including maritime carriage, where (i) these cylinders and pressure drums are constructed, tested and used in accordance with the IMDG Code; (ii) these cylinders and pressure drums are not refilled in Ireland but returned nominally empty to the country of origin of the multimodal transport journey; and (iii) these cylinders and pressure drums are distributed locally in small quantities.

Reference to Annex I, Section I.1, to Directive 2008/68/EC: 1.1.4.2, 4.1 and 6.2.

Content of the Annex to the Directive: Provisions relating to multimodal transport journeys, including maritime carriage, use of cylinders and pressure drums for gases of ADR Class 2, and construction and testing of these cylinders and pressure drums for gases of ADR Class 2.

Content of the national legislation: The provisions of 4.1 and 6.2 do not apply to cylinders and pressure drums of gases of Class 2, provided (i) these cylinders and pressure drums are constructed and tested in accordance with the IMDG Code; (ii) these cylinders and pressure drums are used in accordance with the IMDG Code; (iii) these cylinders and pressure drums were transported to the consignor by means of multimodal transport, including maritime carriage; (iv) the transport of these cylinders and pressure drums to the final user consists only of a single transport journey, completed within the same day, from the consignee of the multimodal transport operation (referred to in (iii)); (v) these cylinders and pressure drums are not refilled within the State and are returned nominally empty to the country of origin of the multimodal transport operation (referred to in (iii)); and (vi) these cylinders and pressure drums are distributed locally within the State in small quantities.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Proposed amendment to ‘Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road Regulations, 2004’

Comments: The gases contained in these cylinders and pressure drums are of a specification, required by the final user, which results in the need to import them from outside the ADR area. Following use, these nominally empty cylinders and pressure drums are required to be returned to the country of origin, for refilling with the specially specified gases – they are not to be refilled within Ireland or indeed within any part of the ADR area. Though not in compliance with the ADR, they are in compliance with and accepted for the purposes of the IMDG Code. The multimodal transport, beginning from outside the ADR area, is intended to finish at the importer’s premises, from where it is intended that these cylinders and pressure drums be distributed to the final user locally within Ireland in small quantities. This carriage, within Ireland, would fall within the amended Article 6(9) of Directive 94/55/EC.

Reference to Annex I, Section I.1, to Directive 2008/68/EC: Parts 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6

Content of the Annex to the Directive: General provisions. Classification. Packaging provisions. Consignment provisions. Construction and testing of packages.

Content of the national legislation: The provisions of Annex I, Section I.1, to Directive 2008/68/EC on the packaging, marking and labelling of time expired pyrotechnic articles bearing the respective UN numbers UN 0092, UN 0093, UN 0191, UN 0195, UN 0197, UN 0240, UN 0312, UN 0403, UN 0404, UN 0453, UN 0505, UN 0506 or UN 0507 for carriage to a military barracks or range do not apply provided the general packaging provisions of Annex I, Section I.1, to Directive 2008/68/EC are complied with and additional information is included in the transport document. The derogation applies only to the local transport, to a military barracks or range, of small quantities of these time-expired pyrotechnics for safe disposal.

Initial reference to the national legislation: S.I. 349 of 2011 Regulation 57(f) and (g)

Comments: The carriage of small quantities of ‘time expired’ marine pyrotechnics, especially from pleasure boat owners and ship chandlers, to a military barracks or range for their safe disposal has created difficulties, particularly in relation to packaging requirements. The derogation is for small quantities (below those specified in 1.1.3.6) for local transport, encompassing all UN numbers assigned to maritime pyrotechnics.

Legal basis: Directive 2008/68/EC, Article 6(2)(a).

Reference to Annex I, Section I.1, to Directive 2008/68/EC: 5.3.1.2.

Content of the Annex to the Directive: The placards shall be affixed to both sides and at each end of the container, MEGC, tank-container or portable tank.

Content of the national legislation: The placard doesn’t have to be fixed to the containers carrying packages when used exclusively in road transport operations. This exemption does not apply to classes 1 or 7.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Real Decreto 97/2014. Anejo 1. Apartado 8

Comments: When a container, other than a tank container, is used only for road transport, and is not related to an intermodal transport operation, it is fulfilling the functions of a swap body. Swap bodies for packaged goods carriage do not require any type of danger placards, except for classes 1 and 7.

Therefore, it has been considered convenient to exempt containers used as swap bodies in road transport operations exclusively from the requirement of placarding, excluding the container carrying goods of classes 1 or 7.

In this exemption containers are assimilated to swap bodies in relation to security conditions, there are no reasons to call for more requirements for containers than for swap bodies since these comply with more security requirements due to their specific design and construction. The rest of placarding and marking required for vehicles carrying dangerous goods shall comply with the provisions of Chapter 5.3 of Annex I, Section I.1 to Directive 2008/68/EC.

Content of the national legislation: Samples of chemical substances, mixtures and articles containing dangerous goods and carried for analysis as a part of market surveillance activity shall be packed in combination packagings. They shall comply with the rules concerning maximum quantities for inner packaging depending on the type of the dangerous good involved. The outer packaging shall comply with the requirements for solid plastic boxes (4H2, Chapter 6.1 of Annex I, Section I.1 to Directive 2008/68/EC). The outer packaging must bear the marking of Section 3.4.7, Annex I, Section I.1 to Directive 2008/68/EC and the text ‘Samples for analysis’ (in French: ‘Echantillons destinés à l’analyse’). Provided that these provisions are complied with, the carriage is not subject to the provisions of Annex I, Section I.1 to Directive 2008/68/EC.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Arrêté du 12 décembre 2012 modifiant l’arrêté du 29 mai 2009 relatif aux transports de marchandises dangereuses par voies terrestres

Comments: The exemption of Section 1.1.3, Annex I, Section I.1 to Directive 2008/68/EC does not provide for the transport of samples of dangerous goods for analysis taken by or on behalf of the competent authorities. To ensure effective market surveillance, France has introduced a procedure based on the system applicable to limited quantities for ensuring the safety of transport of samples containing dangerous goods. As it is not always feasible to apply the provisions of table A the quantity limit for the inner packaging has been defined in a more operational way.

Content of the Annex to the Directive: Transport document needed.

Content of the national legislation: When transporting mineral oil products in Class 3, UN 1202, 1203 and 1223 and gases in Class 2 in connection with distribution (goods to be delivered to two or more recipients and collection of returned goods in similar situations), a transport document is not required provided the written instructions besides the information requested in the ADR, contain information relating to the UN-No, name and class.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Bekendtgørelse nr. 729 af 15.8.2001 om vejtransport af farligt gods.

Comments: The reason for having that national derogation is that the development of electronic equipment makes it possible for e.g. the oil companies using such equipment to transmit continuously to the vehicles information about the customers. As this information is not available at the beginning of the transport operation and will be forwarded to the vehicle during the transport journey, it is not possible – before the transport begins – to draw up the transport documents. These kinds of transport are restricted to limited areas.

Content of the national legislation: Regarding transportation of dangerous goods by road between two or more separate private premises placed in close proximity, the transport can happen with a written permit from the competent authority – certain conditions apply.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Bekendtgørelse nr. 828 af 10. juni 2017 om vejtransport af farligt gods.

Comments: A situation can easily occur where goods are transferred between private premises situated nearby each other but where it is still necessary to access public road for a very limited distance (e.g. crossing a road). This does not constitute carriage of dangerous goods on a public road in the normal sense of the term, and only more lenient terms apply.

Content of the national legislation: Dangerous goods from private households and enterprises may under certain conditions be carried to nearby waste collecting points or intermediate processing facilities for the purpose of disposal. Different provisions shall be complied with depending on the character and risks related to the transport; such as the quantity of dangerous goods per inner packaging, per outer packaging and/or per transport unit, and whether carriage of dangerous goods is ancillary to the main activity of the enterprises or not.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Bekendtgørelse nr. 818 af 28. juni 2011 om vejtransport af farligt gods § 4, stk. 3.

Comments: It is not possible for waste managers and enterprises to apply all provisions of Annex I, Section I.1 to Directive 2008/68/EC when wastes that may contain residues of dangerous goods are carried from private households and/or enterprises to nearby waste collecting points for the purpose of disposal. The waste is typically packagings that have been originally carried according to the exemption of sub-section 1.1.3.1 (c) of Annex I, Section I.1 to Directive 2008/68/EC and/or sold in retail. However, exemption 1.1.3.1 (c) does not apply to carriage to waste collecting points, and provisions of chapter 3.4 of Annex I, Section I.1 to Directive 2008/68/EC are not appropriate for carriage of waste inner packagings.

Reference to Annex I, section I.1 to Directive 2008/68/EC: 3.2, 4.3.2.1.1,

Content of the Annex to the Directive: Provisions on the use of tank-containers.

Content of the national legal provisions: local transport of nitroglycerin (UN 3343) in tankcontainers, over short distances, subject to compliance with the following conditions:

1.    Requirements for the tank-containers

1.1. Only tank-containers specifically authorised for this purpose may be used, which in other respects comply with the provisions on construction, equipment, authorisation of the construction model, tests, labelling and operation in Chapter 6.8 of Annex I, Section I.1 to Directive 2008/68/EC.

1.2. The tank-container’s closing mechanism must have a pressure-release system which yields to an internal pressure of 300 kPa (3 bar) above normal pressure and in so doing frees an upward-facing opening with a pressure-release area of at least 135 cm2 (diameter 132 mm). The opening must not re-close after being activated. As a safety installation, one or more safety elements with the same activation behaviour and a corresponding pressure-release area can be used. The construction type of the safety installation must have successfully undergone type testing and type approval by the authority responsible.

2.    Labelling

Each tank-container is to be labelled on both sides with a danger label in accordance with model 3 in sub-section 5.2.2.2.2 of Annex I, Section I.1 to Directive 2008/68/E.

3.    Operating provisions

3.1. It must be ensured that during transport the nitroglycerine is evenly distributed in the phlegmatisation medium and no de-mixing can take place.

3.2. During loading and unloading it is not permitted to remain in or on a vehicle, except in order to operate the loading and unloading equipment.

3.3. At the the place of unloading, the tank-containers are to be completely emptied. If they cannot be completely emptied, they are to be closed tight after unloading until they are filled again.

Original reference to national legal provisions: derogation North Rhine-Westphalia

Remarks: This concerns local transport in tank-containers by road over short distances as part of an industrial process between two fixed production locations. In order to manufacture a pharmaceutical product, production location A delivers as part of a rule-compliant transport in 600 l tank-containers a resin solution, flammable (UN 1866), packaging group II, to production location B. Here a nitroglycerine solution is added and mixing takes place, producing a glue mixture containing nitroglycerine, desensitised, liquid, flammable, not otherwise specified, with not more than 30 % nitroglycerine by mass (UN 3343) for further use. The return transport of this substance to production location A also takes place in the said tank-containers, which have been specially checked and approved by the relevant authority for this specific transport operation and bear the tank code L10DN.

Reference to Annex I, Section I.1, to Directive 2008/68/EC: 5.4.0, 5.4.1.1.1 and 7.5.11.

Content of the Annex to the Directive: The requirement for a separate transport document, with the correct total quantity for the particular load included, for each transport journey; and the requirement for the vehicle to be cleaned before and after the journey.

Content of the national legislation: Proposed derogation to allow modifications to the requirements of the ADR on the transport document and vehicle cleaning; to take account of the practicalities of bulk transport from port to consignee.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Proposed amendment to ‘Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road Regulations, 2004’ .

Comments: The provisions of the ADR require (a) a separate transport document, containing the total mass of dangerous goods carried for the particular load; and (b) the Special Provision ‘CV24’ on cleaning for each and every load being transported between the port and the consignee during the unloading of a bulk ship. As the transport is local and as it concerns the unloading of a bulk ship, involving multiple transport loads (on the same or consecutive days) of the same substance between the bulk ship and the consignee, a single transport document, with an approximate total mass of each load, should suffice and it should not be necessary to require the Special Provision ‘CV24’.

Subject: Special equipment for distribution of anhydrous ammonia.

Reference to Annex I, Section I.1, to Directive 2008/68/EC: 6.8.2.2.2.

Content of the Annex to the Directive: In order to avoid any loss of contents in the event of damage to the external fittings (pipes, lateral shut-off devices), the internal stop valve and its seating must be protected against the danger of being wrenched off by external stresses or be so designed as to resist such stresses. The filling and discharge devices (including flanges or threaded plugs) and protective caps (if any) must be capable of being secured against any unintended opening.

Content of the national legislation: Tanks used for agricultural purposes for the distribution and application of anhydrous ammonia which were brought into service before 1 January 1997 may be equipped with external, instead of internal, safety fittings, provided they offer protection at least equivalent to the protection provided by the wall of the tank.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Real Decreto 97/2014. Anejo 1. Apartado 3.

Comments: Before 1 January 1997 a type of tank equipped with external safety fittings was used exclusively in agriculture to apply anhydrous ammonia directly onto the land. Various tanks of this kind are still in use today. They are rarely driven, laden, on the road, but are used solely for fertiliser on large farms.

Content of the Annex to the Directive: Packing instruction P002

Content of the national legislation: Transport of waste containing free asbestos (UN No 2212 ASBESTOS, AMPHIBOLE (amosite, tremolite, actinolite, anthophyllite, crocidolite) or UN No 2590 ASBESTOS, CHRYSOTILE) from construction sites:

— 
the waste is transported in tipper lorries,
— 
the waste is packaged in large ‘container bags’ – folding bags of the dimensions of the tipper bed – that are closed tight so as to prevent asbestos fibres escaping during transport,
— 
the container bags are designed to withstand the stresses encountered under normal transport conditions and during unloading at the landfill site,
— 
the other conditions that apply under the ADR are fulfilled.
— 
These transport conditions appear particularly suited to the transport of large quantities of waste produced by roadworks or asbestos removal from buildings. The conditions are also suited to the final storage of the waste at approved landfill sites and offer greater ease of loading and therefore better protection of workers from the asbestos compared with the conditions applicable under the P002 packing instruction in chapter 4.1.4 of the ADR.

Content of the Annex to the Directive: Exemptions for certain quantities; special provisions; use of packaging; use of over-packaging; documentation; construction and testing of packaging; loading, unloading and handling; manning; equipment; operation; vehicles and documentation; construction and approval of vehicles.

Content of the national legislation: provisions relating to the transport of small collected domestic hazardous waste as well as domestic hazardous waste from businesses, which is supplied in appropriate packaging with a maximum capacity of 60 litres. Given the small quantities involved in each instance and given the diverse nature of the various substances, it is not possible to conduct the transport operations in total compliance with ADR rules. Accordingly, a simplified variant deviating from a number of provisions in the ADR is therefore stipulated under the abovementioned scheme.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Scheme for transport of domestic hazardous waste 2015

Comments: The scheme was set up to enable individuals and businesses to deposit small chemical waste at a single location. The substances in question therefore consist of residues such as paint waste. The danger level is minimised by the choice of means of transport, involving, inter alia, the use of special transport elements and ‘no smoking’ notices plus a yellow flashing light clearly visible to members of the public. The crucial point as far as transport is concerned is that safety is guaranteed. This can be achieved by, for instance, having the substances transported in sealed packagings so as to avoid dispersal, or the risk of toxic vapours leaking or accumulating in the vehicle. Incorporated in the vehicle are units suitable for storing the various categories of waste and providing protection against shunting and accidental displacement as well as inadvertent opening. At the same time, notwithstanding the small quantities of waste presented, the transport operator must have a certificate of professional competence, given the diverse nature of the substances involved. Because of the lack of knowledge on the part of private individuals regarding the danger levels associated with these substances, written instructions shall be provided, as stipulated in the Annex to the scheme.

Content of the national legislation: Carriage of packagings containing dangerous goods as waste shall be carried out in accordance with the provisions of ADR from which only a few exemptions are allowed. Exemptions are not permitted for all types of substances and articles.

The main exemptions are:

Small packagings (less than 30 kg) of dangerous goods as waste may be packed in packagings, including IBCs and large packagings, without complying with the provisions of sub-sections 6.1.5.2.1, 6.1.5.8.2, 6.5.6.1.2, 6.5.6.14.2, 6.6.5.2.1 and 6.6.5.4.3 of Annex I, Section I.1 to this Directive. Packagings, including IBCs and large packagings need not be tested as prepared for carriage with a representative sample of small inner packages.

This is permitted provided that:

— 
packagings, IBCs and large packagings conform to a type which has been tested and approved according to packing group I or II of the applicable provisions of Sections 6.1, 6.5 or 6.6 of Annex I, Section I.1 to this Directive,
— 
the small packagings are packed with absorbent material that retains any free liquid that might escape into the outer packagings, IBCs or large packagings during carriage, and
— 
the packagings, IBCs or large packagings as prepared for carriage have a gross mass of no more than the permitted gross mass stated on the UN design type marking for packing groups I or II for the packagings, IBCs or large packagings; and
— 
the following sentence is included in the transport document ‘Packed according to part 16 of ADR-S’.

Content of the Annex to the Directive: Requirements for the transport of dangerous goods by road.

Content of the national legislation: Deviations from the regulations may be permitted if they are motivated by reasons of labour protection, unloading risks, submission of evidence etc.

Deviations from the regulations are permitted only if satisfactory safety levels are met during normal conditions of carriage.

Initial reference to the national legislation: Särskilda bestämmelser om vissa inrikes transporter av farligt gods på väg och i terräng

Comments: These derogations may be applied only by authorities seizing dangerous goods.

This derogation is intended for local transport e.g. of goods that have been seized by the police, such as explosives or stolen property. The problem with these types of goods is that one can never be sure of classifications. In addition, the goods are often not packed, marked or labelled in accordance with the ADR. There are several hundred such transportations carried out by the police every year. In the case of smuggled liquor, this must be transported from the place where it is seized to a facility where evidence is stored and then on to a facility for destruction; the latter two may be quite far apart from each other.

Content of the Annex to the Directive: Provisions for the use of EX/II and EX/III vehicles.

Content of the national legislation: When carrying UN 0335 fireworks, Special Provision V2 (1) in 7.2.4 is applicable only to a net explosive content of more than 3 000 kg (4 000 kg with trailer), provided the fireworks have been assigned to UN 0335 according to the default fireworks classification table in 2.1.3.5.5 of the fourteenth revised edition of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods.

Such assignment shall be made with the agreement of the competent authority. A verification of the assignment shall be carried on the transport unit.

Comments: The carriage of fireworks is limited in time to two short periods of the year, the turn of the year and the turn of the month April/May. The carriage from consignors to terminals can be effected by the present fleet of EX-approved vehicles without great problems. However, the distribution both of fireworks from terminals to shopping areas and of the surplus back to the terminal is limited due to a lack of EX-approved vehicles. The carriers are not interested in investing in such approvals because they cannot recover their costs. This places the whole existence of consignors of fireworks in jeopardy because they cannot get their products on the market.

When using this derogation, the classification of the fireworks must be made on the basis of the default list in the UN Recommendations, in order to get the most up-to-date classification possible.

A similar type of exception exists for UN 0336 fireworks incorporated in Special Provision 651, 3.3.1 of the ADR 2005.
