Abstract These United Kingdom Regulations on the carriage of dangerous goods by road and rail came into force on 1 July 2007. They transpose Directives 2006/89/EC and 2006/90/EC with regard to the transport of dangerous goods by rail into United Kingdom law. They take into account the European Agreement on the Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road 2003 (ADR 2003). They also update and supersede various United Kingdom Regulations, including The Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations 2004 (see CIS 03-1521).
