The Australian Dangerous Goods Code (ADG Code) is updated every two years, with a one year transition period for each edition.

Amendments to edition 7.6 of the code reflect the 20th edition of the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods and changes specific to the Australian environment.

Edition 7.6 of the ADG Code has legal effect from 1 July 2018 and compliance with edition 7.6 is mandatory in Tasmania from 1 July 2019.

Further information and a copy of the ADG Code is available on the National Transport Commission website.
