RECOMMENDATIONS on measures Nto ensure the safe transport of dangerous goods by road are expected to be made next year by a working party of the Economic Comniission for -Europe.

Discussion at this meeting centred mainly on the administrative and technical regulations to be imposed on vehicles to ensure the safety of the crews, other road users and residents of built-up areas along the road, and on regulations governing the movement of the vehicles.
Provisions governing the movement of road vehicles intended for the carriage of dangerous goods, contained in Annex B to , the A.D.R. Road Agreement, are understood to be of great. interest to vehicle builders.
