Resources » The Dangerous Goods Emergency Action Code List 2017
The new list has again been produced by the NCEC, in co-operation with the UK Home Office, and is published by TSO.
The EAC List 2017 is effective immediately in connection with the use of ADR/RID 2017 Edition and is mandatory from 1 July 2017 and the Emergency Action Code List 2015 should no longer be used from that date.
Duty holders are required to use the 2017 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).
