What is adr?

If you are looking for LED work lights for your vehicle, you have probably come across the term ADR. ADR stands for “European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road”. Simply put, it is a European agreement on the international transport of dangerous goods by road. When transporting hazardous materials, the LED lighting on your vehicle must have an ADR certificate. If you transport dangerous goods and your lights are not ADR approved, you are committing an offense. The ADR guidelines are updated every two years. So, be aware that the rules may change.

ADR certification

ADR certification is required for the transport of dangerous goods in Europe. In addition to people, components on a vehicle must also comply with various requirements. Thus the LED lighting must have the correct ADR certification. TRALERT® has a wide range of ADR LED work lights that meet all requirements. Anyone who is involved in the transport of hazardous substances must have obtained an ADR certificate. It is important to note that this concerns both employers and supervisors. Because the employer is ultimately responsible, the employer must also have obtained the correct certificates. These certificates can only be obtained by following courses.

ADR class 8

However, it is important to know what exactly is considered a hazardous substance. Otherwise, you will not know when ADR certification applies. The numbers one, two and three (in Roman I, II and III) indicate the danger. The number one is very dangerous, the number three is less dangerous. ADR Class 8 are substances classified as (VG II and III) corrosive. Substances of class 8 (corrosive) can be either acidic or basic.
