It shall be noted as necessary that national requirements that are applicable to the transportation of such sort of goods other than by sea, i.e. by road/railway/inland waterways have not beeт not addressed within the present document. Plus, it shall further be noted that this publication is primarily meant to specify competence requirements over and above those covered by any of the relevant requirements that are imposed by national and/or international legislation.
