Services / Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor

Due to major accidents occurring during the transport of dangerous goods, the German implemented a responsible person in each legal entity who takes over the responsibility for all issues concerning the transportation of dangerous goods: the Safety Adviser.

Safety advisers quickly became a success story. Starting in Germany in 1989, the European Union adopted this important role within the “Safety Adviser Directive”, Directive 96/35/EEC on 3rd June, 1996.

Since 2001, safety advisers have been mandatory in all ADR/RID member States. All relevant training programmes have been surpassed in the U.S. The directive offers the option of transferring this activity to an external expert.
