Adr European Agreement


WP.15 is an agreement-created body, the European Agreement on the International Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR). In particular, the rules on the classification of dangerous goods were specified in the two agreements for samples of energy materials used for testing (point, classification of objects as objects containing dangerous goods (point 2.1.5), classification of corrosive substances (point 2.2.8). Several new entries have been added to the list of hazardous products, starting with A 3535 TOXIC SOLID, FLAMMABLE, INORGANIC, N.O.S. up to 3548 ARTICLES CONTAINING MISCELLAN DANGEROUS DANGEROUS GOODS N.O.S. New packaging instructions have been created, for example. B a P911 packaging manual for defective cells and batteries (lithium-methal batteries, lithium-ion batteries, whether contained individually or in devices). In addition, existing packaging provisions have been amended in Chapter 3.3. (z.B. ) amended Special Provision 392 for the transport of gas-retaining devices to be mounted on gas-containing and certified motor vehicles to reflect the evolution of specific standards and rules, including Regulation (EC) No.

79/2009 of the European Parliament and the Council of 14 January 2009 relating to the type reception of hydrogen vehicles. and amending the European Parliament`s 2007/46/EC 1 Directive (EU) No. 406/2010 of the Commission of 26 April 2010 Implementation Regulation (EC) No. 79/2009 of the European Parliament and the Council on the Reception of Hydrogen Vehicles 2 . With regard to mode-specific changes, new rules for bindings have been introduced in the ADR. For DNA, the classification of tanker areas requiring explosion protection and the encircling of the equipment category are introduced in order to adapt the requirements applicable to these vessels to the current requirements of directive 2014/34/EU 3. The ADR is a European agreement signed by several countries in Geneva on 30 September 1957. Regulates packaging, transportation, documentation and other aspects of road transport of dangerous goods, including the same transport and depot, whether it is transport between countries or within the territory of a member state. The development of the transport of dangerous goods on inland waterways, both within the Union and between the Union and neighbouring countries, is a key element of the common European transport policy and ensures that all industries that produce or use ADR and DNA-classified goods function properly. Adapting to the technical and scientific progress of these agreements is therefore essential to enable the development of transport and related industries within the economic chain. The amendments are intended to adapt ADR and DNA to un standard rules, including new definitions, classification criteria and UN numbers, packaging and labelling requirements, updating applicable standards and technical provisions, and editorial corrections.

The European Union is not a contracting party to ADR and DNA. However, the fact that the Union does not participate in an international agreement does not prevent it from exercising its jurisdiction by acting jointly, through its bodies, on behalf of the body created by this agreement, in particular by the Member States that are parties to this agreement, in their interest (see Germany/Council, C-399/12 (below” OIV ), point 52 and case law mentioned above. Article 218, paragraph 9, of the EUTC applies regardless of whether the Union is a member of the institution or a party to the agreement. Article 218, paragraph 9, of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFUE) provides for decisions defining “the positions to be taken on behalf of the Union within an agreement-instituted body, when that body is invited to adopt acts with legal effects, with the exception of acts that complement or modify the institutional framework of the agreement”. It was concluded on 30 September 1957 in Geneva under the aegis of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe and came into force on 29 January 1968.
