Driving dangerous goods and special loads abroad

Inspection of tanks used to carry dangerous goods by road


Before an International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) vehicle inspection is carried out, fixed tanks, demountable tanks, vehicles carrying batteries of receptacles and tank containers must be examined and tested by an inspection body approved by the UK Department for Transport (DfT). To get the appropriate certificates, your tank equipment will have to meet certain design, construction and equipment standards.
