The European Commission issued a Directive (96/35/EC) on the appointment and qualification of Safety Advisers for the transport of dangerous goods by road, rail and inland waterways.
 
If you ship dangerous goods by any of these modes of transport, you will probably need to appoint a Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA). The examination for the vocational qualification is set by the Scottish Qualifications Authority and administered by them.

  • Emergency procedures
  • The role of the DGSA
