Abstract: The great importance of the legal regulation of the transport of dangerous goods pushed me
to analyse issues in this paper related to the new legislation in the field of transportation of dangerous
goods in Kosovo adopted after 1999.Given the fact that in Kosovo we do not have any other scientific
paper which addresses legislation in the field of transport of dangerous goods, this paper presents a
special contribution in addressing theoretical and scientific analysis on this issue. In this paper, a special
emphasize has been given to harmonization, respectively, to the approximation of the new legislation
in Kosovo with the acquis, in the field of transport of dangerous goods, as well as the aspects of direct

inter alia present an immediate request to amend and supplement the legal framework for transportation
of dangerous goods in Kosovo.
