Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA) Exams

Since 2001 organisations involved in the transport of dangerous goods must appoint a qualified Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser - a DGSA. A person can only be appointed as a DGSA if they have passed a written examination. In the UK, the Department for Transport (DfT) has appointed the responsibility for operating the DGSA Exam scheme to the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA). The SQA set dates for these important DGSA Exams and publish the dates on their Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser - DGSA website:

DGSA Exam Dates 2019

  • 21 November 2019

DGSA Exam Dates 2020

  • 5 March 2020
  • 11 June 2020
  • 10 September 2020
  • 19 November 2020
