National CDG Practitioners Forum
The CDGPF was created in 2000 by two police officers who thought that a more standardised approach to enforcing hazmat made sense. The initial meeting received the backing of NPCC, DfT & HSE, then went across the UK. This coincided with the HSE returning inspection powers back to Police forces which now include ONR in relation to Class7. The forum meets twice a year and is attended by police forces from across the UK, Government agencies and, more importantly, industry representatives.
