ADR is an EU Directive.

It covers all vehicles.

The Core

ADR Core Mandatory Module
The Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations 2004 (SI
2004/568) (the Carriage Regulations) and the European agreement (Accord européen relatif au
transport international des marchandises dangere uses par route, known as ADR) which together
regulate the carriage of dangerous goods by road are highly prescriptive. The regulations were
amended in July 2005 to reflect the changes made in ADR for 2005. For most duty holders the changes
are minor but one significant change is that from 1 January 2007 drivers of all vehicles will need to hold
an ADR training certificate. The small load exemption will still apply.
