1 Security of surface transport & Transport of dangerous goodsDG Energy and Transport 1 European Bio-preparedness: Workshop on transportation and traceability of Bio-materials; 7 November 2006 Brussels Andrea Pearson DG Energy and Transport Security of surface transport & Transport of dangerous goods

2 DG Energy and Transport 2 What are infectious substances? l Class 6.2 Infectious substances l Category A: An infectious substance which is carried in a form that, when exposure to it occurs, is capable of causing permanent disability, life-threatening or fatal disease in otherwise healthy humans or animals. l UN2814 INFECTIOUS SUBSTANCE, AFFECTING HUMANS. l UN2900 INFECTIOUS SUBSTANCE, AFFECTING ANIMALS only.

3 Security of surface transport & Transport of dangerous goodsDG Energy and Transport 3 l Category B: An infectious substance which does not meet the criteria for inclusion in Category A. Infectious substances in Category B shall be assigned to UN No l UN No. 3373: BIOLOGICAL SUBSTANCE, CATEGORY B l Medical or clinical wastes are wastes derived from the medical treatment of animals or humans or from bio-research l UN No. 3291: CLINICAL WASTE, UNSPECIFIED, N.O.S. or (BIO) MEDICAL WASTE, N.O.S. or REGULATED MEDICAL WASTE, N.O.S..

4 Security of surface transport & Transport of dangerous goodsDG Energy and Transport 4 l Genetically modified micro organisms and organisms are micro organisms and organisms in which genetic material has been purposely altered through genetic engineering in a way that does not occur naturally l Either as a Class 6.2 substance (UN2814 / UN2900 / UN3373) or as a Class 9 Miscellaneous dangerous substances and articles (UN3245 Genetically Modified Organisms) l If as Class 9 then special provision SP637 may apply: Genetically modified micro organisms or genetically modified organisms are not subject to the provisions of ADR when authorized for use by the competent authorities of the countries of origin, transit and destination.

5 Security of surface transport & Transport of dangerous goodsDG Energy and Transport 5 Exemptions l Not covered by ADR: u Dried blood spots, collected by applying a drop of blood onto absorbent material, or faecal occult blood screening tests and blood or blood components which have been collected for the purposes of transfusion or for the preparation of blood products to be used for transfusion or transplantation and any tissues or organs intended for use in transplantation. u Human or animal specimens for which there is minimal likelihood that pathogens are present are not subject to ADR if the specimen is carried in a packaging which will prevent any leakage and which is marked with the words "Exempt human specimen" or "Exempt animal specimen", as appropriate.

6 Security of surface transport & Transport of dangerous goodsDG Energy and Transport 6 What do the transport rules cover? l Classification l Packaging (P620 / P650 / P621/ IBC620 / BK1 BK2) and Labelling l Loading / Unloading / Handling / Securing l Documentation (including additional consignee details of name and contact telephone number)

7 Security of surface transport & Transport of dangerous goodsDG Energy and Transport 7 l Security Rules u Identification of carriers u Temporary storage areas well lit u Photographic identification of the crew u Competent Authorities shall maintain up to date databases l High Consequence Dangerous Goods (HCDG) rules u Security plans to cover: F Specific allocations of responsibilities F Records of dangerous goods concerned F Procedures for dealing with the security threat F Measures to prevent the theft of the vehicle F Use of telemetry, where fitted, to track the movements of (HCDG)

8 Security of surface transport & Transport of dangerous goodsDG Energy and Transport 8 Legal framework from a transport point of view UN Model Regulations (Orange book) IMDG Code (Sea) ICAO Technical Instructions (AIR) ADR (Road) European Framework Directive RID (Rail) European Framework Directive AD N (Inland Waterway)

9 Security of surface transport & Transport of dangerous goodsDG Energy and Transport 9 Situation today Community law applies international agreements to the territory of the EU via following Directives: Transport by road 94/55 (ADR) Transport by rail 96/49 (RID) Transportable Pressure Equipment 99/36 (TPED) Dangerous Goods Safety Advisers 96/35 and 2000/18 Road Side Checks 95/50 and 2004/112
