The NTC reviews the Australian Dangerous Goods Code every two years to help it meet international best-practice and evolving user needs in Australia.
Please note: You can get a copy of the current code – edition 7.5 – by visiting Heavy vehicles > Safety > Australian Dangerous Goods Code.
Consultation on the draft Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road and Rail Edition 7.6, and the draft Competent Authority Panel Rules closed in February 2018.
The next amendment package will adopt into the Code, where possible, the amendments that comprise the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods Model Regulations Twentieth Revised Edition, as well as Australian-specific amendments.
All issues are considered in consultation with the Transport of Dangerous Goods – Maintenance Advisory Group. The NTC plans to submit the finalised amendments to the Transport and Infrastructure Council for approval in May 2018.
