Guidelines for Transport of Dangerous Goods
The Transport Community (”TC”), established by the Treaty signed on 9 October 2017, shall be
based on the progressive integration of transport markets of the South East European Parties
into the European Union transport market on the basis of the relevant acquis, including in the
areas of technical standards, interoperability, safety, security, traffic management, social policy,
public procurement and environment, for all transport modes excluding air transport.
The final sentences of Article 1 stipulate that “this Treaty sets out the rules applicable between
the Contracting Parties under the conditions set out hereinafter. These rules include the
provisions laid down by the acts specified in Annex I”.
One of the important multi-modal legal provisions is the portfolio of Directives dedicated to the
transport of dangerous goods.
