Tanks for transport of dangerous goods. Terminology

Status : Current   Published : August 2019



This document provides additional terms and definitions to those written in the European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) or the Regulations concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Rail (RID), appearing as Appendix C to the Convention concerning International Carriage by Rail (COTIF).

This document forms part of series of documents prepared by CEN/TC 296 regarding the transport of dangerous goods. The series supports the proper application of the ADR and RID.

This document is applicable to tanks used for the transport of dangerous goods.

This document does not apply to carriage in bulk of dangerous goods.

For convenience, Annex A(informative) repeats some horizontal definitions taken from ADR 2017 chapter 1.2, and Annex B(informative) repeats some definitions from ADR 2017 chapter 6.7, specific to portable tanks.


The ADR is updated on a regular basis, therefore Annexes A and B might become out of date.

Annexes C, D and E (informative) provide alphabetical trilingual indexes of terms in English, French and German where the key is English, French and German respectively.

Annex F(normative) is a schematic diagram of tank openings and closures according to the tank code.
