Abstract

Abstract In 1991 the Commission of the European Communities presented the Council a proposal for a council directive on the “appointment of an officer for the prevention of the risks inherent in the carriage of dangerous goods in undertakings which transport such goods, and on the vocational qualification of such officers”. Since 1991 such a ‘Risk Prevention Officer’ is well-known in Germany. Risk Prevention Officers have the duties to control the observation of all legal regulations concerning the transport of dangerous goods to train the staff. Germany has gained good experiences with this new person and would welcome the European directive if it would come into force in the near future.
