Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

Regulation 2 amends the Dangerous Substances in Harbour Areas Regulations 1987 so that certain obligations apply in relation to tanks constructed before 1st January 2005 instead of 1st July 2001 or to those constructed after 31st December 2004 instead of 30th June 2001.

Regulations 3 to 5 amend the Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Rail Regulations 1996, the Carriage of Dangerous Goods (Classification, Packaging and Labelling) and Use of Transportable Pressure Receptacles Regulations 1996 and the Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road Regulations 1996 so that certain provisions relating to tanks or transportable pressure receptacles apply or do not apply to tanks or receptacles constructed—

  • before 1st January 2005 instead of before 1st July 2003;

  • after 31st December 2004 instead of after 30th June 2003,

and make other consequential amendments.

Regulation 6 implements, as regards Great Britain, Commission Directive 2002/50/EC of 6th June 2002 (O.J. No. L149, 7 June 2002, p. 28) adapting to technical progress Council Directive 1999/36/EC on transportable pressure equipment (O.J. No. L138, 1st June 1999, p. 20). The effect of Directive 2002/50 is to insert references to EC design-examination certificates where these had been omitted in error in Annex IV to Directive 1999/36/EC and regulation 6 amends the Transportable Pressure Vessels Regulations 2001 accordingly. A copy of the transposition note for Directive 2002/50 can be obtained from the Health and Safety Executive’s International Branch at Rose Court, 2 Southwark Bridge, London SE1 9HS and a copy has been placed in the library of each House of Parliament.
