Improving the land transport of dangerous goods


We are exploring ways to improve the consistency and efficiency of regulating the land transport of dangerous goods. 

About this work

This paper provides an overview of the legislative framework for the land transport of dangerous goods by road and rail in Australia. It summarises the process implemented by states and territories to adopt the Australian Dangerous Goods Code and explores potential improvements that could be considered to promote the consistent implementation of the Code’s requirements.
