This study, where management accounting and the ADR Agreement coexist, is a multidisciplinary paper. As a result, if the operator does not comply with the ADR Agreement, the amount of penalties to be paid and the losses and losses of internationally violated commercial agreements are more than the additional costs incurred in accordance with the agreement of the relevant operator. A business manager operating in the industry related to the dangerous goods should decide on the costs of the ADR Agreement.
