The New South Wales Environment Protection Authority is seeking feedback on the Draft Dangerous Goods (Road and Rail Transport) Regulation 2022.
The dangerous goods transport laws help protect people, property and the environment from the risks of accidents involving dangerous goods.
Laws relating to the transport of dangerous goods are designed to help prevent accidents and reduce harm if an accident occurs. Dangerous goods pose risks to people, property and the environment due to their chemical or physical characteristics
Proposed changes in the Draft Dangerous Goods (Road and Rail Transport) Regulation 2022 improve safety, including the fitting of equipment to prevent rollover accidents involving dangerous goods vehicles, improved maintenance requirements, prohibited routes rules and changes that better align the Regulation with national dangerous goods Model Laws.
Individuals, businesses and organisations that are involved in the dangerous goods transport industry and the community are being encouraged to provide feedback.
The consultation is open for comment until 13 May 2022.
