Exis Technologies launches new ADR capability, 19 December 2013
Exis Technologies' IMDG Code compliance and training product
range has been expanded to cover road transport requirements
arising from the ADR Agreement.
When dangerous goods are moved into or out of Europe by sea
under the IMDG Code, certain requirements imposed by ADR (or
equivalent national regulations) must be met during the road leg to
or from the port.
Compliance with the IMDG Code alone is not enough; ADR
provisions relating to matters such as driver training, safety
equipment, documentation and vehicle and trailer markings all need
to be addressed.
Responding to this issue and the needs of many of its customers,
Exis has enhanced its Hazcheck compliance systems to cover
additional provisions and/or variations which apply during the road
legs of a combined road/sea journey.
For example, Hazcheck Online,
an online subscription service, currently allows a consignor
shipping a dangerous goods cargo transport unit to Europe to check
the shipment against the IMDG Code; the new version also provides
for the creation of a validation report highlighting ADR
requirements for the road journey, including:
- tunnel restriction codes
- additional ADR documentation provisions
- transport unit marking and placarding
Workstation, a computer download version of Hazcheck Online,
also has ADR capability added.
The ADR Dangerous Goods List is available as part of Hazcheck
Data, a 'toolkit' which can be integrated into customers'
Exis has also added an ADR module to IMDG Code
e-learning, an online training course which was developed
in collaboration with the International Maritime
Students taking the IMDG Code course can now opt to include
additional road transport elements covering the general provisions
of ADR, additional documentation requirements, ADR carriage
requirements and ADR exemptions.
The ADR module is intended for students already familiar with
the international rules for the carriage of dangerous goods by sea
and is designed to provide a means of extending knowledge of the
sea regulations to cover European road regulations. It can be
added to any of the courses - general awareness, function specific,
advanced, freight forwarder or refresher.
Both the Hazcheck compliance systems and IMDG Code e-learning
are regularly updated to reflect the latest editions of the IMDG
Code and ADR Agreement.
