Laws and regulations regarding the shipment of dangerous goods have become increasingly complex and subject to increasingly stringent enforcement. If you are a shipper of dangerous goods in the Netherlands, you must comply with international laws and regulations. The Inspectie Leefomgeving en Transport (ILenT) looks after all compliance issues related to the transport of dangerous goods shipments originating from The Netherlands. In addition, this department, part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, is responsible for issuing dangerous goods licenses for the air transport of dangerous goods and ensuring that the processes related to these licenses are performed as prescribed.

We can ensure that your company complies with international and local requirements by providing advice to personnel responsible for handling dangerous goods.
