Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road & Rail (known as the ADG Code) - Northern Territory

Description

This Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road & Rail is referenced in the legislation as the ADG Code. The current code is the 6th edition.
The ADG Code sets out technical requirements and guidelines for the transport of dangerous goods by road and rail and is adopted under all State and Territory legislation implementing the Road Transport Reform (Dangerous Goods) Regulations 1997 (Cwlth). Many of the requirements for transporting dangerous goods are performance based rather than explicitly fixed by regulation. Thus, a person who can demonstrate an equivalent or better way of safely transporting a commodity than is required in the Regulations may seek approval to do so.
