DGSA Register

The AIC Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA) Register

Since 1st January 2000 and as a result of EC Directive 96/35/EC, companies involved in the transport and physical loading of dangerous goods have been required to appoint a qualified Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA).  Employers (including self employed) who load or transport dangerous goods beyond the thresholds laid down in the regulations, need to appoint a DGSA to guide them on the legal, safety and environmental aspects of the transport of dangerous goods.

AIC have been informed that it is difficult to locate a DGSA because a register or centralised information source does not exist and in order to facilitate this AIC have been asked to set up a DGSA register so that a company can make contact with one if they require.

Benefits to the industry of the DGSA Register are:

  • Ability to locate a DGSA within a local area
  • Ability to locate a DGSA by specialist area
  • Web base live data source of DGSA's so information is up to date
  • Meet due diligence requirements in the areas of dangerous goods
  • Save time and money

The benefits to the Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser are: 

  • Ability to be located by companies that need a DGSA
  • Access to new companies and specialist areas
  • Networking with other DGSA's
  • Information source to develop skill
