Dangerous Goods, A Guide to Exemptions from the Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road Regulations provides a reference to the various exemptions from regulations available to transport operators for the transport of dangerous good by road.
Most transport operators have little experience of the regulations surrounding the carriage of dangerous goods. The smaller operator in particular will have no point of reference to refer to in order to find out if they are legally allowed to carry dangerous goods without application of all the requirements, including the costly training of drivers.
This book enables the operator to quickly and easily identify the regulatory exemptions that apply to the listed UN numbers which identify dangerous goods. The operator is able to obtain confirmation on their ability to legally carry dangerous goods within the limitations of a transport operation and does not need to seek specialist knowledge or training. It lists the UN numbers and the exemptions that apply in an easy reference format and also provides information on how to use the data within the regulatory framework.
