It was concluded on 30 September 1957 in Geneva under the aegis of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe and came into force on 29 January 1968. The agreement was amended on August 21, 1975 in New York (Article 14, paragraph 3), although these amendments did not come into force until April 19, 1985. On January 1, 2011, a new amended ADR came into effect in 2011. Schedules A and B have been regularly modified and updated since the asDr came into effect. As for the change for entry into force on 1 January 2015 (until June 2017), a revised consolidated version was therefore published in the form of an ECE/TRANS/242 document, Vol. I and II.  From 1 January 2017 a new revision www.unece.org/fileadmin/DAM/trans/danger/publi/adr/adr2017/ADR2017e_web.pdf In particular, the rules on the classification of hazardous materials were specified in the two agreements for samples of energy materials for testing (point 184.108.40.206), classification of objects as objects containing dangerous goods (point 2.1.5), classification of corrosive substances (point 2.2.8). Several new entries have been added to the list of hazardous products, starting with A 3535 TOXIC SOLID, FLAMMABLE, INORGANIC, N.O.S. up to 3548 ARTICLES CONTAINING MISCELLAN DANGEROUS DANGEROUS GOODS N.O.S.
New packaging instructions have been created, for example. B a P911 packaging manual for defective cells and batteries (lithium-methal batteries, lithium-ion batteries, whether contained individually or in devices). In addition, existing packaging provisions have been amended in Chapter 3.3. (z.B. ) amended Special Provision 392 for the transport of gas-retaining devices to be mounted on gas-containing and certified motor vehicles to reflect the evolution of specific standards and rules, including Regulation (EC) No. 79/2009 of the European Parliament and the Council of 14 January 2009 relating to the type reception of hydrogen vehicles. and amending the European Parliament`s 2007/46/EC 1 Directive (EU) No. 406/2010 of the Commission of 26 April 2010 Implementation Regulation (EC) No. 79/2009 of the European Parliament and the Council on the Reception of Hydrogen Vehicles 2 . With regard to mode-specific changes, new rules for bindings have been introduced in the ADR. For DNA, the classification of tanker areas requiring explosion protection and the encircling of the equipment category are introduced in order to adapt the requirements applicable to these vessels to the current requirements of directive 2014/34/EU 3. Schedules A and B have been regularly modified and updated since the asDr came into effect.
As a result, the amendments that came into effect on January 1, 2017 were the subject of a revised consolidated version as an ECE/TRANS/257, Vol. I and II document. The development of the transport of dangerous goods on inland waterways, both within the Union and between the Union and neighbouring countries, is a key element of the common European transport policy and ensures that all industries that produce or use ADR and DNA-classified goods function properly. Adapting to the technical and scientific progress of these agreements is therefore essential to enable the development of transport and related industries within the economic chain. The amendments are intended to adapt ADR and DNA to un standard rules, including new definitions, classification criteria and UN numbers, packaging and labelling requirements, updating applicable standards and technical provisions, and editorial corrections. The ADR is the European agreement on the international transport of dangerous goods by road with the Land Route 2017, published online this week by the UN Economic Commission for Europe of the UN-EEC.
