The Netherlands has the legislation, the so called: ‘Regeling erkende instanties vervoer gevaarlijke stoffen’ (Stcrt. 209, nr. 19721) for bodies which can be recognized as a competent authority of ADR, RID, ADN. In English it is called: ‘Regulation for recognized bodies for the transport of dangerous goods’. On the basis of this regulation such recognized bodies may carry out certain acts, like testing of packagings for the transport of dangerous goods.

The recognition and supervision on these bodies is done by the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate (ILT).
