The CMR consignment note
The CMR consignment note is required for international road transport. CMR stands for 'Convention Relative au Contract de Transport International de Marchandises par la Route' (Translated: Convention for the International Transport of Goods by Road). Almost all European countries have joined this international convention. The treaty was signed in Geneva, Switzerland in 1956.
The international consignment note is also permitted for domestic use. This also automatically subjects the transport to the AVC. However, the English, Russian, German and Polish CMR consignment note is outside the national AVC. When transporting dangerous goods, additional information must be reported in accordance with the Transport of Dangerous Goods Act. For the transport of waste (within the meaning of the Environmental Management Act), another document is legally required.
