We review the Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road & Rail (ADG Code) every two years. This is to align with international best practice and to meet changing user needs in Australia.
In June 2020, the Transport and Infrastructure Council approved version 7.7 of the ADG Code. These changes are effective from 1 October 2020 and compulsory from 1 October 2021.
States and territories have committed to amending their local dangerous goods laws to align with changes in edition 7.7 of the ADG Code.
