Abstract The European agreement concerning the international carriage of dangerous goods by inland waterways (ADN) was adopted on 25 May 2000 on the occasion of the Diplomatic Conference organized jointly by the Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the Central Commission for the Navigation of the Rhine (CCNR). ADN consists of a main legal text and Regulations annexed thereto and aims at ensuring a high level of safety of the international carriage of dangerous goods by inland waterways, contributing effectively to the protection of the environment, by preventing any pollution resulting from accidents or incidents during such carriage, and facilitating transport operations and promoting international trade of chemicals. The annexed Regulations contain provisions concerning dangerous substances and articles, provisions concerning their carriage in packages and in bulk on board inland navigation vessels and tank vessels, as well as provisions concerning the construction and operation of such vessels. They also address requirements and procedures for inspections, issue of certificates of approval, recognition of classification societies, monitoring, and training and examination of experts. Volume 1 contains the final act of the conference, the resolution on the follow-up of the conference, the agreement as adopted on 25 May 2000 and part of the annexed regulations as revised as of 1 January 2002. These are continued in volume 2.
