Department of Transport Update

The following message and attachment have been received from the Department for Transport which contains a number of papers relating to explosives. The date for responses is a week today and if members have comments will you kindly forward them to the Dangerous Goods team as dangerousgoods@dft.gov.uk.

As you know, the meeting of the TDG scheduled for June has been cancelled and the papers submitted for consideration will be deferred to the next meeting in December. However, the UK has been given an opportunity to comment on the papers now, to aid discussions later in the year. We wish to take this opportunity. Therefore, we have prepared the attached summary of the papers. Here also is the link to the papers themselves: http://www.unece.org/trans/main/dgdb/dgsubc3/c32020.html

It will be very helpful if you can send us any comments you have by 5 June. Be warned, there are 58 working papers and seven informal papers.
