What’s ADR?
The words A.D.R. is an acronym for “Accord Dangereuses Route“, in short “European Agreement concerning the international carriage of dangerous goods by road.” Signed at Geneva on 30 September 1947, and ratified in Italy by Law No. 1839 of August 12, 1962, the agreement is made up of a few pages together with a memorandum of understanding.

Earlier, in Italy as in other European countries, a dual regulatory system coexisted, ADR for international transport and internal rules for national ones. But at the beginning of January 1, 1997, with the arrival of the Single European Market, the application of ADR has become mandatory to create a single market in this sector (Directive No. 94/55 / EEC of 21/11/1994 ).

ADR and hazardous waste
Particular attention should be paid to the transport of hazardous waste (chemicals or mixtures of industrial products), the end result of a production cycle. In the carriage of goods and hazardous waste must comply with the following guidelines:

  • suitability of the vehicles transporting the waste
  • the transport documentation must follow the technical and administrative provisions in force
  • suitability in the method of packaging and shipping
  • hazard labeling with specific pictograms that refer to the prevailing dangerous substance contained in the waste.
