Office for Nuclear Regulation

Consultation on CDG guidance

As part of our work to support the amendments to the Carriage of Dangerous Goods and use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations (CDG) we asked for your views on our updated guidance.

The updated guidance is non-statutory but it will be a useful tool to inform and assist dutyholders involved in the transport of Class 7 goods (radioactive material), to comply with the amended requirements of CDG.

The amendments to the CDG Regulations have been made to implement the Euratom Basic Safety Standards Directive 2013 requirements for emergency preparedness and response, and the notification of certain incidents when transporting Class 7 goods (radioactive material).

The amendments to the CDG Regulations came into force on 21 April 2019. Dutyholders have a 12 month implementation period to be compliant with the amended requirements of CDG.

Our informal consultation ran from 7 June to 19 July 2019

Post consultation outcomes

ONR has considered the comments received throughout the consultation period.

We will undertake further engagement at the end of the 12 month implementation period for the regulations.
