2.  Council Directive 94/55/EC (O.J.

No. L279, 1.11.2000, p. 40) and Commission Directive 2003/28/EC (O.J. No. L90, 8.4.2003, p. 45)) applies the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road signed at Geneva on 30th September 1957, as amended (“ADR”) (Current Edition: 2003). Council Directive 96/49/EC (O.J.

The amendments in these Regulations align the Carriage Regulations with the latest versions of the ADR and RID agreements, as defined in regulation 2 of the Carriage Regulations.

3.  Apart from minor and drafting amendments, the principal modifications are—

(i)providing alternative requirements for the carriage of dangerous goods in bulk (Schedule 2, paragraphs 1(b) and (d), 11 and 12);

5.  In Great Britain, the corresponding Regulations are the Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment (Amendment) Regulations 2005 (S.I. 2005 No. 1732). Copies of the regulatory impact assessment relating to those Regulations, together with a Northern Ireland Supplement, are held at the offices of the Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland at 83 Ladas Drive, Belfast BT6 9FR from where copies may be obtained on request.
