XIII International Conference «Multi-modal transportation of dangerous goods»
XIII International Conference

On 23 and 24 March 2017, the International Dangerous Goods & Containers Association (IDGCA) and the International Staff Training Centre (ISTC), acting in a capacity of Conference Operator, will hold the XIII International Conference under a general title «Multi-modal transportation of dangerous goods». The Conference will be held in Saint-Petersburg in the business premises of the «Azimuth» Hotel.

The annual Conference «Multi-modal transportation of dangerous goods» is a unique forum in Russia and CIS States for discussing most vital and urgent issues related to the production, transport and storage of dangerous goods, and legal regulation in this sphere. The main purpose of the Conference consists in establishing an open dialogue between business and authority representatives, removal of unnecessary administrative barriers and enhancement of safety, as well as comprehensive professional assessment of implementation quality of international conventions, standards, regulations and legal acts currently in effect, which regulate activities related to the carriage of dangerous goods by all transport modes, and establishment of fair competition conditions at the transport service market.

The scope of the Conference provides for a possibility of getting acquainted with the recent outcome of activities of international organizations on the development and implementation into the business environment of international legal instruments, standards and rules regulating carriage of dangerous goods and containers by all modes of transport. The XIII Conference will be held with support by the ECOSOC Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods and on the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). Participation of representatives of federal and regional authorities, heads of companies and organizations of transport industry, managers of sea and river ports, terminals, railroads, road vehicle companies, cargo shippers, freight forwarders, manufacturers of transport equipment and other specialists concerned, is planned in the Conference.

Organizers of the Conference would like to note that the enforcement practice currently adopted in Russia and CIS States for the carriage of dangerous goods, including certification of means of package and packaging, is not adequately supported by national legislative acts, which gives rise to differing interpretations of international instruments by authorities and business communities. To develop suitable recommendations for the authorities and business in order to look for reasonable solutions, it is planned to discuss at the Conference typical situations taking place in real life.

Interim Programme of the XIII International Conference enclosed herewith.
