The regulations covering the movement of hazardous materials by road, including fuels, come under the international ADR rules. These govern how containers are made and approved, as well as who may transport them and how. Generally, up to 1000 litres of diesel or petrol may be transported in an approved container without the driver possessing a specific ADR licence.
However, under very specific circumstances, limited quantities of diesel may be transported by professionals in the normal course of their business.
Up to 450 litres may be transported by a professional user if it is together with the vehicle or equipment to be refuelled, and if the container is checked for integrity and kept clean, tidy and secure an exemption from ADR may be claimed.
According to the regulations on hazardous goods, the mobile tank systems do not exist. They are so-called IBCs. The abbreviation IBC stands for Intermediate Bulk Container. IBCs are used in various sectors for transport and storage, including the transport and storage of hazardous goods. They are filled with fluid or pourable products, but are also used for loose bulk products. This includes, for example, fuels for fuelling machines, chemicals, waste products, dusts, but also food products, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products.
IBCs contain a volume of up to 3,000 litres.
