New dangerous goods regulations - essential guidance for drivers from FTA and Albion chemicals
11 May 2004

The Freight Transport Association in association with Albion Chemicals has today published its new ADR Drivers’ handbook. The handbook provides essential guidance on the new ADR aligned British dangerous goods regulation that came into force on 10 May 2004.

These new regulations called the Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations 2004 implement amongst other things a new system of load size thresholds above which the full regulations apply, new vehicle equipment requirements and revised Emergency Action Codes for tankers.

Written specifically for dangerous goods drivers, the pocket sized 20 page handbook provides up to date information on the new regulations and covers the key requirements for the safe transport of dangerous goods including:

Loading
Segregation
Placarding
Documentation
Safe parking
Emergencies

Commenting on the new Guide, Brian Robinson, Operations Director of the Albion Chemicals Group said, ‘In our industry we operate with ever increasing legislation. A key management issue in all of this is to communicate in a user-friendly way to those people who must comply day to day.

‘This guide is key to that process as it clarifies the legislation where it matters most, with the drivers.’

The guide will be made available to all drivers taking FTA’s City and Guilds approved ADR training courses and from ShopFTA, priced £2.50 a copy (discounts for multiple orders apply), please call 01892 552278.

In line with the implementation of the new Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations 2004, FTA has also published a new Dangerous Goods Operator’s Guide, for transport managers and Dangerous Goods Safety Advisors, priced at £5 per copy and also available from sales@fta.co.uk
