The DG-QRAM software
Incidents involving the spillage of dangerous goods are amongst the most feared in road tunnels. To deal with this issue, a Quantitative Risk Assessment Model (QRAM) to evaluate the risks of dangerous goods transport through road tunnels was developed jointly by PIARC and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
The license price is €1,500 for new buyers, and €1,000 for buyers of the old QRA-3.61 version.
