The British Association of Dangerous Goods Professionals – BADGP – aims to support professionals who work in the business of transporting dangerous goods; in whatever mode of transport: road, rail, air and sea.
BADGP came into existence following a meeting, convened by the late Desmond Waight in June 2010, to discuss the formation of an association for dangerous goods professionals to help improve their skills and provide a channel through which could approach the authorities.
We are a growing, non-profit, Great Britain-based membership association but are also very pleased to welcome members from overseas. As of September 2018, as well as those throughout Great Britain, we have members based in Belgium, Cyprus, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Portugal, Switzerland, USA and Zambia.
Our members work in an extremely diverse array of companies in many different sectors of industry, but all with a professional interest in the transport of dangerous goods and a keen desire to keep up to date with legislation and best practice and be part of the professional community that BADGP exists to provide.
