Edition 7.5 of the Australian Dangerous Goods Code (ADG) has been released.

Updated every two years, the latest version of the ADG became effective on 1 March 2017. A one-year transition period applies, during which either Edition 7.4 or 7.5 can be used.

The ADG sets out the requirements for transporting dangerous goods by road or rail. The code is given legal force in each Australian state and territory by each jurisdiction’s dangerous goods transport laws.

The only state exempt from this version of the code is Western Australia, where it will become effective once legislation is passed.
