Most European countries sign up to the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR). Furthermore, each nation that complies with ADR implements specific safety measures through its own national statutory legislation.

ADR has been in force since 1968 and is administered by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). Due to technological advances and changes of legislation, it’s updated every 2 years.
