Certificate of Recognition for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air – cat A.
In the Netherlands, all parties involved in the transport of dangerous goods by air, such as shippers, agents, ground handlers and airlines, must have a certificate of recognition. This is granted by the Inspectorate once it has been determined that the applicant meets all the applicable requirements such as the training of all staff involved.
The Netherlands has the legislation, the so called: ‘Regulation for recognized bodies for the transport of dangerous goods’ (Stcrt. 209, nr. 19721) for bodies which can be recognized as a competent authority of ADR, RID, ADN. Based on this regulation such recognized bodies may carry out certain acts, like testing of packaging for the transport of dangerous goods. The recognition and supervision on these bodies is done by the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate (ILT).
