British Association of Dangerous Goods Professionals

Dangerous Goods & Related Resources

If you work in Dangerous Goods, BADGP can provide you with a number of means of support.


For a Question and Answer Forum, BADGP is operating a ‘discussion group’ through LinkedIn.

The LinkedIn discussion group aims to provide a response to those who have a question, often one of detail, which needs to be addressed quickly. The discussion group allows others to see the questions, who can then provide direct responses.

If you use LinkedIn, click the ‘Group’ tab and go to the group called “British Association of Dangerous Goods Professionals” or click on this link to be taken directly to the page BADGP LinkedIn Group, then click on the "Ask to join" button. 

If you do not yet use LinkedIn, it is easy to join through


BADGP publishes a newsletter, approximately every quarter. The newsletter is published to all of our members and aims to inform and update them on any matter relating to Dangerous Goods, reviews of our past events and announcements of future events.

Articles included in the last few newsletters have included:

  • Dangerous Goods Acceptance By Shipping Lines In The Big Ship Era
  • A Review Of BADGP’s “Security Seminar”
  • Carriage Of Dangerous Goods Post-Brexit
  • HSE Prosecutions
  • “Just Do It!” – Becoming A BADGP Committee Member
  • Latest news from Office for Nuclear Regulation
  • IMDG Code Amendment 38-16 2017 significant changes
  • Updates From European Association of dangerous goods Safety Advisors (EASA)

We actively welcome articles from our members and non-members. Articles can be short snippets of news / updates or fuller contributions. We also welcome photos and graphics. The articles cannot be overtly commercial or of a selling nature, but can, of course, mention your company name, website, etc.

We are publishing our next newsletter at the end of September 2017, so please let us have your articles for consideration before about mid-September. Please email contributions to supplying the text in any mainstream word processing format and graphics as jpg, png, gif, etc.

Presentations From Seminars & Other Events

Information: The Annual General Meeting: our AGM is not so much an AGM as a full day’s seminar. It kicks-off with the formalities of the AGM itself, but this is followed by several presentations from people well-known in the transport of Dangerous Goods.


BADGP is unique in several ways: no other organisation represents individual professionals working in the dangerous goods area in any function, including, but not limited to, Dangerous Goods Safety Advisors. It covers all major modes of transport. Members from outside Great Britain are positively welcomed (but all meetings are held in GB).
