The CEFIC Emergency Response Intervention Cards (ERICards or ERIC's) provide guidance on initial actions for fire crews when they first arrive at the scene of a chemical transport accident without having appropriate and reliable product specific emergency information at hand. Consult database in English.

ERICards may be reproduced without further permission provided that:

  • the cards are reproduced in their entirety, without alteration
  • no copies of cards are being sold
  • due reference is made to the guiding principles for the use of the cards and to the disclaimer

The ERICards were developed with the financial support (Reference SUB-B27020B-E3-ERICARDS-2002-S07.14176) of the European Commission - Directorate General for Energy and Transport.

Last update (February 2020)

ERICards have been brought in line with ADR 2019 and the Emergency Action Codes (EAC) 2019.
This has resulted in the creation of two UN 3535 TOXIC SOLID, FLAMMABLE, INORGANIC, N.O.S. (PG I and PG II), and the amendment of the substance name for UN 3302 2-DIMETHYLAMINOETHYL ACRYLATE, STABILIZED.
