The article presents the interaction between soft law and hard law in the regulations governing the transport of dangerous goods. The regulations on the transport of dangerous goods are presented as a model of complex integrative normative assembly of rigorous scientific thinking and action, of reaction and continuous adaptation to technical-scientific progress, concomitant with the process of progressive harmonisation and simplification of their dispositions which triggers the need to broadly use soft law.

The authors identified three sets of functions with regard to the use of soft law in the transport of dangerous goods regulations: 1. development and harmonization, 2. completion and substitution, 3. interpretation and explanation of the application legal norms.
