Dangerous Goods Load Calculator

     From 1999, starting with SI257 (CDG) then in subsequent legislation such as SI1348 The Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Receptacles Regulations 2009 (CDG/TPR), these implement the European Agreement on the International Carriage of Dangerous goods by Road (ADR) as the basis of our national and international regulations and agreements governing the transport of dangerous goods by road.

     These require companies that consign or (un)load, transport, dangerous goods above thresholds, dependent upon the Transport Category (For example Transport category 2 which applies to most Packing Group II products in quantities over 333Litres/Kgs) to appoint or employ a Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser. (DGSA)

     The DGSA must hold a valid Vocational Training Certificate, but in practice to undertake their role competently require practical experience in the transport of dangerous goods by all modes.

     Dangerous Goods Safety Advisers’ consultants embrace a multi modal approach based on over 100 years’ experience in the packing, transport and consignment of dangerous goods. Apart from their background in the international movement of freight two consultants established a specialist Multi-modal dangerous goods packing and freight terminal decades ago underlying their practical and theoretical capabilities. All have been directors of transport companies and one continues to hold a Transport Managers Certificate of Professional Competence. In addition to our existing role with shippers and carriers we are the ideal partners to work with freight forwarders who since 2023 are required to appoint a DGSA.

     Established at the onset of the requirement of companies to appoint a DGSA in 1999 the consultants are engaged by a number of companies that operate throughout the UK and Northern Europe.

     We provide training, be it by Teams/Zoom or in house for the surface modes and can give practical advice in respect of ICAO airfreight regulations and IATA commercial requirements.
We have the experience. We are the specialists.
