image of Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR)

The Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) is intended to increase the safety of international transport of dangerous goods by road. Regularly amended and updated since its entry into force, it contains the conditions under which dangerous goods may be carried internationally. This revised version is based on amendments applicable as from 1 January 2021. It contains new or revised provisions concerning in particular the carriage of electric storage systems (including lithium batteries installed in cargo transport units and defective batteries), of medical waste and of radioactive material. Until now, the title of ADR was the “European Agreement concerning the international carriage of dangerous goods by road (ADR)”. Following the decision of the Contracting Parties to the Agreement, the word European will be removed in this new edition to acknowledge the global status of ADR and as an encouragement to all United Nations Member States to join and fully implement it, supporting progress towards road safety targets of the Sustainable Development Goals.
