The European Agreement Concerning The International Carriage Of Dangerous Goods By Inland Waterways

However, that circumstance shall not prevent it from exercising its competence by adopting, through its institutions, a position which must be defended on its behalf in the body established by this Agreement, in particular by the Member States which are parties to that Agreement, in their interest. Since the nineteenth century (1838), the Central Commission has adopted specific rules for the transport of dangerous goods on the Rhine (gunpowder, explosives, toxic and corrosive substances, etc.). Following contact with UNECE in 1995, CCNR played an important role in the elaboration of the European Convention on the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Inland Waterways. These negotiations culminated in the signing of an agreement in Geneva on 26 May 2000. The new agreement, known as ADN, entered into force on 29 February 2008. The regulation annexed to that agreement was based mainly on the provisions of ADNR. The updated ADN Regulation entered into force on 28 February 2009. . . .
