(Preparation of Transnational ADN workshop - 27 March 2019 in Tegernsee, Germany) During the thirty-third session of ADN Safety Committee the representative of the Secretariat of Danube Commission informed members of committee about initiative of joint working group EUSDR (PA1a and PA11) regarding organization of ADN transnational workshop in spring 2019, for competent authorities from the Danube region countries.
Noting that these activities were intended to facilitate training and know-how exchange for control bodies at transnational level and to improve mutual understanding among control authorities on inland navigation issues (including those addressing transport of dangerous goods) the Safety Committee urged the Danube Commission and organizers of workshop to contribute for improvement of implementation of ADN requirements (e.g. for controls, required certificates, etc) into account for addressing all matters regarding the transport of dangerous goods.
The Safety Committee invited the representative of the Danube Commission to continue to keep it informed of the progress in these areas.
In the meantime, the ADN workshop was confirmed and will be held on 27 March 2019 in Tegernsee, Germany. See the invitation letter in the annex.
