The ADR lays down requirements for transport operations, driver training, and the construction and approval of vehicles. The 2023 edition has been prepared on the basis of amendments which are set to enter into force on 1 January 2023, after acceptance by the Contracting Parties.

Transporting dangerous goods by sea, air, or land is an important environmental issue. This publication presents the European Agreement, the Protocol of Signatures, annexes and amendments.
