The National Transport Commission (NTC) is undertaking a full review of the Australian Dangerous Goods Code (the ADG Code), focusing on the transport of dangerous goods by road and rail.
Although a high-level update of the ADG Code occurs every two years, this will be the first full review since the seventh edition was released in 2007.
This review is an opportunity for Australia to:
- better align with international and intermodal practices
- leverage international processes to ensure all aspects of the code are regularly updated.
Improving international alignment will make it easier for Australia to participate in the global economy.
If you are involved in activities in the dangerous goods transport chain (or engage people to do this on your behalf), the NTC is conducting an information session on 23 June (2pm-4pm AEST) that will help you learn more. The NTC will share details about what could change and the process they’ll follow while reviewing the code.
