Transport of dangerous goods with the UNECE

Transport of dangerous goods needs to be regulated in order to prevent, as far as possible, accidents to persons or property and damage to the environment, the means of transport employed or to other goods. However, with different regulations in every country and for different modes of transport, international trade in chemicals and dangerous products would be seriously impeded, if not made impossible and unsafe. Moreover, dangerous goods are also subject to other kinds of regulations, e.g. work safety regulations, consumer protection regulations, storage regulations, environment protection regulations.

In order to ensure consistency between all these regulatory systems, the United Nations has developed mechanisms for the harmonization of hazard classification criteria and hazard communication tools (GHS) as well as for transport conditions for all modes for transport (TDG). In addition, the UNECE administers regional agreements that ensure the effective implementation of these mechanisms as far as transport of dangerous goods by road, rail and inland waterways is concerned.

New trade association for Chemical distribution industry

The global chemical distribution industry has founded the brand-new International Chemical Trade Association (ICTA), replacing the International Council of Chemical Trade Associations.

The registered trade association was officially formed on 1 February 2016 in Brussels by the European Association of Chemical Distributors Fecc, the US NACD, the German and British associations VCH and CBA, and a number of major chemical distributors.

Besides ensuring the international exchange of good practices, helping ICTA to expand in other countries and onto other continents, the task of the association will be to coordinate international activities taking place at a global level. Regulations that concern the handling, transport, management and security of chemicals are being discussed in a global context more and more – often on a United Nations (UN) level. In these cases, the ICTA will speak for the chemical distribution industry worldwide. The ICTA will also promote UN initiatives like Global Compact and encourage its members to participate.
