ADR NEWS – CONSULTANT’S APPOINTMENT

    The ADR Legislation regulates both the modes of transportation of dangerous goods and the suitability of the vehicles used for this transportation.

     

    Legislative Decree 40/2000, subsequently amended by Legislative Decree 35/2010, establishes the figure of consultant for Dangerous Goods Transportation in our country as well.

    The obligation to appoint the ADR consultant will enter into force from July 1st 2019. This is referred to all those companies that, in the matter of dangerous goods, carry out:

     

    • shipping and transport activities by road, sea or navigable (river).
    • packing, filling, loading or unloading operations, except for those companies that carry out the final discharge only.

     

    Each local unit of the company must have its own ADR consultant.

     

    The regulatory framework foresees the possibility of using the appointment exemption, on the basis of the quantity of dangerous goods and the type of business activity.

     

    A company is always considered exempted when the dangerous goods are packed:

     

    • in limited quantities (chapter 3.4 of the ADR)
    • in exempt quantities (chapter 3.5 of the ADR)
    • in exempted quantities per transport unit (ADR chapter 1.1.3.6)

     

    Where the shipment of dangerous goods is occasional and occasional, the exemption may be requested only for the transport categories 3 and 4 (chapter 1.1.3.6.3 of ADR).

     

    Where the shipment of dangerous goods is occasional and sporadic, it is possible to request exemption may for the transportation categories 3 and 4 only (chapter 1.1.3.6.3 of the ADR), as long as the following limitations are not exceeded:

     

    • maximum 24 annual operations
    • maximum 3 monthly transactions
    • maximum 180 tons/year

     

    The exemption is not automatic but it must be requested directly to the competent motorization office and, once confirmed, does not relieve of the compliance with the regulations on dangerous goods transportation, nor of the planned training obligations.
