Proposal for security plans creation for high consequence dangerous goods in road transport of dangerous goods

In the list of dangerous goods, there are materials and articles, which, due to particular criteria stated in the European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Goods by Road (ADR), are treated as high consequence goods. High consequence dangerous goods are those whose misuse may lead to a terrorist event and therefore pose a serious threat of mass casualties, destruction or socio-economic disruption. All personnel responsible for the carriage of high consequence dangerous goods should comply with ADR requirements, as appropriate. Basic ADR requirements, which should lead to the elimination of potential safety violations hazards, is to acknowledge, implement and respect security plans. The ADR reflects overall security plan regulations, describing the elements of which such plans should be created. The ADR itself does not prescribe methods for preparing documentation, nor implementation details. This article is to elaborate on these aspects.
