RSA Take Over Processing of ADR Vehicle
Certification from Bus Eireann
From Monday 11th January 2010, all applications for Certification of ADR
vehicles (Dangerous Goods vehicles) will be processed by the Road Safety
Currently, consignors wishing to carry hazardous or dangerous goods by road must
apply to Bus Eireann for a certificate of approval. Currently, a single test fee
is submitted with the application form. Bus Eireann then process the application
and certification and forward the relevant data to the individual ADR test
centre, who carry out the actual test.
From Monday 11 January 2010, consignors wishing to carry hazardous or dangerous
goods by road must apply to the RSA for certification, instead of to Bus Eireann.
The procedure for the actual ADR test itself will remain the same, i.e. the test
will be carried out as at present by the test centre. There are currently 16
approved centres throughout Ireland which carry out the technical examination on
behalf of the RSA.
In addition to the change of address for submitting applications outlined above,
the terms of payment will also change. While the overall fee payable by
applicants for the test remains the same, from Monday 11 January 2010 onwards,
each applicant must submit a fee of 91.50 Euro with the application to the RSA
and then pay the remaining 91.50 Euro directly to the test centre on the day of
the test. The RSA will be unable to process applications with an incorrect fee,
and such applications will be returned to the applicant with a request for the
correct fee (91.50 Euro).
All test applicants currently on the Bus Eireann database will be notified of
the change and a new RSA application form will be enclosed with each
application. If a test applicant requires further forms they can print off the
form at the bottom of this notice or contact the new ADR Unit in the RSA. The
contact details of the unit are as follows:
