To ensure that bulk dangerous goods are transported safely, tank vehicles transporting dangerous goods are required to comply with requirements in the Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods (the ADG Code) and Australian Standard 2809 (AS 2809). 

The aim of the Dangerous Goods Tank Vehicle Inspection Manual (DGTVIM) is to help operators and repairers of tank vehicles demonstrate that their vehicle is safe and meets the legislative requirements.

The DGTVIM sets out

  • the requirements that must be met

  • ways to meet the requirements, and

  • the reasons a vehicle is deemed not to have met the requirements.

The manual also provides a pdf and Word version of the Tank Vehicle Inspection Checklist that can be completed and printed.
