  • Accidents with dangerous goods illustrate why a safe execution of the transport of dangerous goods is of great importance. Heightened attention for the right execution of the ADR regulation is therefore also very important.

    In compliance with directive 96/35/EG, member states are required to assure that companies dealing with the transport of dangerous goods can make use of the services of the safety adviser. This is also valid if the company only deals with packaging, loading, filling or unloading of dangerous goods. This requirement is valid when the exemption limits of the ADR are not applied.

    Companies can appoint their own safety adviser or make use of an external safety adviser, who is personally certified.

    The certificate for safety adviser for road and/or rail transport is valid for five years. To extend the certificate you need to sit for an extension exam. You need to pass this exam within one year of expiration of your currently valid certificate. In preparation of the extension exam, you can take the three-day refresher course with us.
