BADGP is an expanding, not-for-profit, UK-based membership association that offers membership to any person, anywhere in the World, who works with or is involved with dangerous goods, in whatever mode: air, water, land. We support many Dangerous Goods Safety Advisers, DGSAs, but you don’t need to be a DGSA to join.
Our members work in an extremely diverse array of organisations, but all share:

A Brief History of BADGP
In the noughties it was noted by the British Department for Transport (DfT) as well as by the chemicals, fuels and transport industries, and by technical advisers and consultants, that there was an absence of proper support for those working in the transport of dangerous goods. In 2009 at a DfT meeting, it was noted that this deficiency applied to all modes of transport and suggested various actions. One recommendation was the setting up of a professional support system, as at that time dangerous goods professionals had no channel through which to approach the authorities, no means of support through an association, nor any obvious means by which to improve their professional skills.
