Last reviewed 30 November 2021

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recently conducted a review of the Dangerous Goods in Harbours (DGHAR) 2016 legislation.

This legislation covers the safe movement of dangerous goods, including explosives, through ports and harbours in Great Britain.

The review was carried out as the legislation has been in place now for five years, and the UK government is continuing the good practice of reviewing current legislation after it has been in place for five years.

The review found that “the regulations achieved their objectives, had no unintended consequences, and remain fit for purpose”.
