Five tips to be prepared for the ADR changes of 2015

29 September 2014

On 1 January 2015 the new ADR becomes effective. In 2015 there will be new or changed requirements for, among others, the dimensions of the text ‘overpack’ and ‘salvage packaging’, packagings for the transport of lithium-ion-batteries and energy cells in the waste phase, and the transport of ‘discarded’ packagings that will be given the new UN-number 3509.
EVO gives a practical overview of the changes. After registration you can download an overview of the provisional changes to ADR 2015 in the English language.
