The ADR is intended to increase the safety of international transport of dangerous goods by road.
The Agreement has been regularly amended and updated since its entry into force to establish international requirements and procedures for training and safety obligations of participants.
Annex A: General provisions and provisions concerning dangerous articles and substances, in particular, packaging and labelling.
Annex B: Provisions concerning transport equipment and transport operations, in particular, construction, equipment and operation of the vehicle carrying the goods in question.
The structure of the ADR s consistent with that of the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Model Regulations, the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (of the International Maritime Organization), the Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air (of the International Civil Aviation Organization) and the Regulations concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Rail (of the Intergovernmental Organisation for International Carriage by Rail).

Many maritime countries have taken steps to regulate the carriage of dangerous goods by sea, based on the safety considerations set out in parts A and A-1 of chapter VII of the 1974 SOLAS Convention, as amended. More recently, as marine pollution has become a serious concern, countries have taken further steps to regulate the carriage of marine pollutants, as described in Annex III of MARPOL.
The International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code, which was first published in 1965, amplifies the requirements of both Conventions and has become the standard guide to all aspects of handling dangerous goods and marine pollutants in sea transport.
Whats in it
The Code lays down basic principles: detailed recommendations for individual substances, materials and articles, and a number of recommendations for good operational practice, including advice on terminology, packing, labelling, stowage, segregation and handling, and emergency response action.
Who uses it
Although the information in the Code is directed primarily at the mariner, its provisions may affect a range of industries and services: manufacturers, packers, shippers, feeder services such as road and rail, and port authorities will find reliable advice on terminology, packing, labelling, classification, stowage, segregation, and emergency response action.
The IMDG Code has undergone many changes over the years, in both format and content, in order to keep up with the rapid expansion of the shipping industry. Amendment 38-16 includes revisions to various sections of the Code and to transport requirements for specific substances. It was adopted by IMOs Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) at its ninety-sixth session in May 2016.
Amendment 38-16 of the Code is mandatory as from 1 January 2018 but may be applied by Administrations in whole or in part on a voluntary basis from 1 January 2017.

The HSE 'six-pack' contains the most popularly quoted health and safety Regulations. They came into effect in Britain after six European Directives, collectively known as the 'six-pack', were issued by the European Commission:
The main Regulation is the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, also known as the 'Management Regs'. They came into force in 1993, and were updated in 1999. Regulation 3, placing a legal duty on employers to carry out a risk assessment as a first step in ensuring a safe workplace, lies at the heart of a modern approach to health and safety at work.
Other 'six-pack' Regulations cover: heating, lighting and ventilation at work; the safe use of computer screens and keyboards; handling heavy or awkward loads; rest breaks; and personal protective equipment.

The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code is the worldwide standard for shipping dangerous goods by sea. Amendment 37-14 is effective January 1, 2015 and becomes mandatory on January 1, 2016.
The IMDG Code is written in conjunction with government regulations under the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) and was developed as a uniform international code for the transport of dangerous goods by sea covering such matters as packing, container traffic and stowage, with particular reference to the segregation of incompatible substances.
The IMDG Code is a two-volume set, and a one-volume Supplement that focuses on fires and spillage emergencies is also available. Both publications will be available in English or French. The two-volume Code will also available electronically (English only) for download.
