We are exploring ways to improve the consistency and efficiency of regulating the land transport of dangerous goods.
In June 2020, the NTC released an issues paper for public consultation which provides an overview of the legislative framework for the land transport of dangerous goods by road and rail in Australia.
The paper 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.
In November 2020, ministers endorsed the NTC's six-goal action plan designed to improve the consistency and efficiency of regulating the land transport of dangerous goods, including a full review of the Australian Dangerous Goods Code.
The NTC will work collaboratively with regulators and industry to progress the recommendations and actions.
