Abstract These recommendations have been developed in light of technical progress, the advent of new substances and building materials, the exigencies of modern transport systems and the need to protect persons, equipment and the environment. They are addressed to governments and international organizations concerned with the regulation of the transport of dangerous goods. They do not apply to the transport of dangerous goods in bulk which are subject to special regulations. The recommendations are presented in the form of models, which consist of a basic scheme of provisions that allow uniform development of national and international regulations governing various modes of transport, but which remain flexible for accommodating any future special requirements.
