Do you need to appoint a dangerous goods safety adviser (DGSA)?

You must appoint a DGSA if your business regularly transports, packs, fills, loads or unloads dangerous goods. This applies to goods sent by road, rail and inland waterway.

DGSAs are not expected to monitor procedures related to the carriage of dangerous goods by sea or air.

There are exemptions to the requirement to appoint a DGSA, depending on how often your business handles dangerous goods and in what quantities.
