This European Standard specifies equipment and accessories for road tankers used for the transport of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and identifies the equipment that is considered necessary to ensure that filling, transportation and discharge operations can be carried out safely. It specifies the requirements for the assembly of the accessories and the vehicle LPG equipment to the road tanker. This European Standard also identifies additional equipment and accessories that can be used on road tankers carrying LPG.
This European Standard does not preclude the use of alternative designs, materials and equipment testing which provide the same or a higher level of safety. ADR  requires that such alternative technical codes be recognised by the competent authority, provided that the minimum requirements of section 6.8.2 of ADR  are complied with.
This European Standard does not apply to “tank-containers” or “battery-vehicles” used for the transport of LPG.
