The European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road


The purpose of ADR, and likewise ADR Training, is to ensure that dangerous goods (including clinical and other dangerous waste) being carried by road can cross international borders freely. This is so as long as operators, with their vehicles and drivers, comply with its provisions. ADR has been in force since 1968 and is administered by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). Due to technological advances and changes of legislation, it’s updated every 2 years.
