The European Agreement concerning the Internatioal Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Inland Waterways (ADN) was signed in Geneva on May 26, 2000 and entered into force on February 29, 2008.

The regulations annexed to ADN contain provisions for dangerous substances and articles and their carriage, both in packages and in bulk on dry cargo ships and tankers. These regulations also contain provisions for the construction and operation of such ships. They also relate to the requirements and procedures for inspection, issuance of certificates of approval, recognition of classification societies, monitoring, and training and verification of personnel.

In accordance with the requirements of ADN regulations, companies involved in the transport of dangerous goods by inland waterway transport must train all the employees involved in this transport and related activities. Specific requirements are laid down in the regulations for the training and qualification of safety consultants and experts. A group of experts from one of the European countries, involved in the transport of dangerous goods on tankers, was trained at the ISTC in the period from 17 to 20 November. After training, the graduates were certified as experts in the "IDGCA" NP. Feedback from graduates about the courses is extremely positive. The staff of teachers is certified by "IDGCA" NP and possesses not only theoretical knowledge, but also has a rich experience of working on ships carrying dangerous goods, including chemical tankers.
