Resources » The Dangerous Goods Emergency Action Code List 2015
NCEC was again commissioned by the Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) to produce the Dangerous Goods Emergency Action Code List (EAC List), published by TSO.
The EAC List 2015 is effective immediately in connection with the use of ADR/RID 2015 Edition and is mandatory from 1 july 2015 and the Emergency Action Code List 2013 should no longer be used from that date.
Duty holders are required to use the 2015 EAC List for the application of the appropriate EACs under the Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations 2009 (CDG 2009, as amended) and the Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2010 (CDG 2010, as amended).
These regulations implement the Regulations Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Rail (RID), and the European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR).
NCEC will once again be holding its Emergency Action Code (EAC) list consultation. This aims to resolve any inconsistencies or concerns from previous versions of this quick reference tool for the emergency services. The results of the consultation have an effect on the EAC list, especially with regards to raising concerns that would not be resolved otherwise.
