These Regulations, usually known as the RID, are applicable to the international transport of dangerous goods by rail between any of the countries which have signed the Convention concerning International Carriage by Rail (COTIF) of 9 May 1980. RID sets out the minimum standards for safe packing and transport of various types of dangerous goods travelling to or through another country. The philosophy behind the standards set out in the RID can be summarized as follows: the carriage of dangerous goods should not present greater hazards than that of any other type of goods; the regulations should be as clear and easy to follow as possible; and the standards should be as high as possible without imposing prohibitive costs on the manufacturer or consignor.
