This certificate is mandatory for drivers of vehicles carrying out both national and international transport of dangerous goods (explosives, flammables, radioactive, etc.).

General and historical outlines

The ADR Agreement on the Transport of Dangerous Goods is an international agreement between countries of the United Nations (United Nations Organization) whose purpose is to harmonize the safety rules relevant to international road haulage, and to ensure for such transport an acceptable level of security. The countries that have subscribed to the ADR are currently 50.

The Agreement was signed in Geneva on 30 September 1957 under the auspices of the Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) and entered into force on 29 January 1968.

Its structure is simple and compact and includes two technical attachments:

Annex A: Identification of dangerous goods, packaging requirements and their labeling.                                                                                                                                          Annex B: Construction, equipment and use of road vehicles for the transport of dangerous goods.

Annexes A and B have been periodically updated since the entry into force of the ADR.
