2.Risk Category II

Where failure to comply with relevant ADR provisions creates a risk of personal injury or damage to the environment such failures would normally lead to taking appropriate corrective measures such as requiring rectification at the site of control if possible and appropriate, but at the completion of the current transport movement at the latest.

The vehicle does not carry the equipment required in the ADR or in the instructions in writing

5.

Test and inspection dates and use periods of packaging, IBCs or large packaging have not been complied with
