ADR lays down rules for the carriage of dangerous goods by road. The rules are updated every uneven year. Not all changes are equally far-reaching, but companies subject to the rules are nevertheless required to be and remain familiar with them.

In addition to ADR there are national regulations that apply to the carriage of dangerous goods. The Belgian Royal Decree of 5 July 2006 makes it mandatory to appoint a safety consultant and to define his tasks, for example.
