The UK has countersigned a multilateral agreement with other ADR States, extending the validity of all existing ADR Driver Training and Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA) certificates due to expire between 1 March 2020 and 1 November 2020, until 30 November 2020. The UK has also countersigned a multilateral agreement which mirrors this extension for rail DGSA certificates. Both multilateral agreements have now been published online:

- Multilateral Special Agreement RID 1/2020: Extension of DGSA certificates.
The UK has today countersigned two further multilateral agreements on extending the periodic inspection and test expiry date for pressure receptacles and closed cryogenic receptacles carrying certain class 2 gases:
- Multilateral Agreement M326: For the Road mode.
- Multilateral Special Agreement RID 3/2020: For the Rail mode.
