ADR (French L’Accord européen relatif au transport international des marchandises Dangereuses par Route) means the transport of dangerous materials, i.e. goods that may (or must not) be transported internationally only subject to certain conditions which are described in the ADR Convention ratified by Poland. Detailed information on and legal acts providing for the transport of dangerous goods are available on the website of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport: click here.
ADR goods are sensitive goods. Any failure to comply with the safety regulations and rules may cause a threat to a driver’s health (and sometimes life). An accident and a release of a dangerous substance outside the loading space may cause a threat for the natural environment in the contaminated area.
