(DfT) has called for hauliers involved in the transport of hazardous goods to share with it the effect the latest ADR regulations amendments have had on them.
The DfT has asked anyone involved in transporting dangerous goods to respond to the consultation, allowing it to analyse the costs and benefits the changes have had.
The main amendments, which became effective on 1 January, include: the exemption of uncleaned medical devices from ADR regulation if in rigid and punctureresistant packaging; the exemption of items including 1kg or less of mercury from the regulations; and the carriage of lighters and lighter refills under certain provisions.
The consultation closes on 10 June and can be viewed on the DfT website.
