This article reports that the European Commission is proposing to harmonise the rules for transporting dangerous goods. It aims to integrate the existing rules for all three modes of transport -- road, rail and inland waterway -- into one law for simplification. EU law already covers road and rail transport but no rules currently exist for inland waterway transport.
