BADGP Events and Industry meetings Calendar

BADGP is becoming a growing voice in industry and aims to give members opportunity to be made aware and kept up to date of potential changes to the regulatory requirements around the safe transport of dangerous goods. To this end this page shows a list of meetings that BADGP will be either in attendance at or submit comments on behalf of its members.

As well as being in attendance at other industry meetings, the main focus will be on the meetings held by the UK Department for Transport (DfT), Dangerous Goods Division. These meetings are held to discuss the various papers being submitted that may alter the current regulations governing the transport of dangerous goods. The list of current meeting dates shown below are held before and after the respective UN meetings in Geneva. The agenda and papers being discussed at these meetings can be found on the UNECE website at:

Some of the proposed papers may lead to significant change and may be of interest to you, your employer and your business. We recommend that you take note of when meetings are being held and if you have any comments you wish to make we would be happy to hear from you. If you wish to submit comments we recommend you do so at least 2 weeks before the meeting date. Please email them to

When forming your comments it is worth bearing mind that the DfT will ask the following questions:

1. What is the potential impact of this proposal on industry and safety if it was adopted?

2. Can it be done in an alternative/better way?

3. What are the unintended consequences of applying this proposal to the regulations?
