The Great Britain Freight Transport Association (FTA) launched a Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA) consultancy service for freight companies in the country. It aims to aid companies seeking compliance with the EC DGSA legislation which covers the appointment and vocational qualification of DGSA for companies transporting dangerous goods. In addition to the DGSA consultancy service, FTA also launched DGSA Revision Days and practical courses for qualified DGSA. The Revision Days aims to provide advice for those required to resit one or more modules. The courses are held at the FTA Management Training Center in East Sussex.
