The Dangerous Goods Emergency Action Code List for 2023 has been produced by the National Chemical Emergency Centre (NCEC), in co-operation with the UK Home Office, and is published by TSO.
The EAC List 2023 is effective immediately in connection with the use of ADR and RID 2023 and is mandatory from 1 July 2023. The Emergency Action Code List 2021 should no longer be used from that date.
Duty holders are required to use the 2023 EAC List for the application of the appropriate EACs under Schedule 1 of the Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations 2009 (CDG 2009) (as amended); and of the Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2010 (CDG 2010) (as amended).
