RID/ADR/ADN Joint Meeting
The RID/ADR/ADN Joint Meeting is jointly organised twice a year by the Secretariats of OTIF and the UNECE Transport Division. It has resulted in close cooperation with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) since it was set up.
The Joint Meeting’s task is to ensure that the dangerous goods provisions for European land transport (RID – Regulation concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous goods by Rail, ADR – European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road and ADN – European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Inland Waterway) are harmonised as closely as possible in order to simplify and promote multimodal transport. With the restructured editions of RID and ADR, which were first published on 1 January 2001, the differences were reduced to a minimum.
The RID/ADR/ADN Joint Meeting examines amendments arising from the UN Model Regulations, which apply globally, and proposals which only concern European land transport, such as the provisions for RID/ADR tanks.
