Resumen These regulations (effective, 1 Jan. 1982 and subsequently) continue and extend to all dangerous substances, and to the road tanker conveyance of these substances, the provisions of the Hazardous Substances (Labelling of Road Tankers) Regulations 1978 which are now revoked.

The road transport of certain scheduled substances is prohibited, fire and explosion prevention measures are stipulated, and tank overfilling is prohibited. The operator and driver must be aware of the hazards of the substances they are transporting, and the driver must receive adequate safety instruction and training.
