Norwegian term or phrase: ADR/RID
This is apparently a book containing regulations for, among other things, the transportation of hazardous goods by road and rail. But does anyone know what the acronym stands for? I get a lot of references the "ADR/RID-bok", but none which tells me what it actually stands for.
