Examines the changes envisaged from the adoption of the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road ADR 2001 into domestic legislation following enactment of the proposed Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road and Rail Regulations (CDGRR). The changes to explosives regulations in particular are discussed. The comparison of GB regulations and ADR 2001 is made in tables in which each significant regulation or clause within the relevant GB regulation is cross indexed to the relevant section in ADR 2001; comments and further notes are given. Obvious discrepancies, omissions or extensions are identified and highlighted. Concludes that the consolidation of GB explosives transport regulations into CDGRR permits a rationalisation and simplification of existing law; specific sector guidance will be needed.
