The Mozambican Ministry of Industry and Trade (MIC), through the National Institute for Standardization and Quality (INNOQ), has introduced the inspection of vehicles and equipment for the transport of dangerous cargo in order to keep the users aware of the standards to be observed.

To this end, INNOQ, in partnership with the National Road Transport Institute (INATRO), has started to hold seminars to publicize the start of the inspection in order to raise awareness among those involved in the dangerous cargo transport sector.

“With this, what we want is safety in the transport of dangerous goods”, said INNOQ’s director-general, Geraldo Albasini, speaking on Tuesday, in Maputo, at the launch of the inspection initiative.

He explained that that the measure will be carried out in all regions of the country, until June of the current year.

“Therefore, the transport of dangerous goods must be carried out safely, without putting the drivers in danger. One of the aims of the legal instrument, approved in June 2019, is also to prevent the environment from being put at risk as a result of the transport of dangerous goods”, he said.

“We’re starting this dissemination activity here in the south of the country, but we’ll also have seminars in the central and northern regions”, he added.

Other mechanisms, he said, such as social networks, will be used to spread the word about the decree.

The launch of the measure was attended by regulatory authorities, representatives of the transport sector. and companies involved in the transport of dangerous goods.
