Safe and Reliable Transport Chains of Dangerous Goods in the Baltic Sea Region

Successfully completed project DAGOB

Project funded by the European Commission Project part-financed by the European Union Regional Development Fund within the Baltic Sea Region INTERREG III B Neighbourhood Programme (2006- 2007).

The aim of the DaGoB project was to increase the safety level of dangerous goods transports in the Baltic Sea Region by enhancing the cooperation between competent authorities.

One of the most important results of DaGoB is the significantly increased level of cross-border cooperation between the authorities involved. It is now at a much higher level than it was before this project.

In addition to participation at seminars and workshops, the staff exchange can be singled out as a most efficient instrument for bringing those who work with dangerous goods together and increase their knowledge and confidence concerning the cooperation with other countries.

Concrete suggestions for further activities as a direct result of the developed instruments have been made. This is very important in order not only to maintain the level of cooperation and knowledge achieved, but also to extend it.
