Last week we have visited Drivingcamp Ltd. in Zsámbék for a professional consultation. Drivingcamp Hungary in Zsámbék is the most modern traffic safety and driving technique centre in both Hungary and all over Central-Europe. The knowledge provided by their trainings helps professional drivers to gain more practical knowledge and experience on the field of carriage in tanks and in the near future for cargo securing as well. The training courses provide all drivers the possibility to learn and practice daily situations- e.g. by cargo securing- with full safety and experience the consequences of non-conformities.
As the final event of the consultation we are invited for a professional presentation on 25th November 2014. Through carriage safety all of us is affected but in the first round we would like to ask application from colleagues who work for companies with a core-competence in carriage in tanks or in packagings, or often train professional drivers.
Further information will be available soon on our homepage.

Proposal for administrative conciliation prepared on dangerous goods delivery safety advisor opinion of BTE
At the most important regulation about the operation of dangerous goods delivery safety advisor is the 2/2002 no.Govermental Regulation („Regulation”) been percuading for 11 years has arisen numbers of need of amending and correcting.
The sufficiencies of the Regulation make uncertainty the situation, practical activity of the involved safety advisors and enterprises. The enterprises bring into focus interpreting the Regulation on the exemptions regularly, and however it is prescribed, they do not employ safety advisor, or employee trained and controlled by advisor. Therefore we recognised concerning to this, that the safety and professional delivery cause problem on many fields.
BTE got thanking the request to express his opinion about the document of „plan of the regulation of the minister for national development in the year 2013 about the dangerous goods delivery advisors”.
The plan was studied by the experts of our association. Making our opinion we relied on the members’ many year experiences and international experiences too, especially on the German regulation, which can be regarded as a competent in the regulation of this field.
We trust to set a dangerous goods regulation which is applicable in practice, can be controlled correctly, and fit for the demand of the profession and the enterprises resulted by the social consiliations.
