2 Volume Set Now Available For The IMDG Code 39-18 (2018 Edition)

The goal of the IMDG Code is to enhance the safe transport of dangerous goods by sea and protect the marine environment. With this, the code is updated to ensure that it keeps up with the rapid expansion of the shipping industry.

What's in it

The IMDG Code lays down basic principles: detailed recommendations for individual substances, materials, and articles, and a number of recommendations for good operational practice including advice on terminology, packing, labeling, stowage, segregation, and handling, and emergency response action.

 

Who uses it

Although the information in the code is directed primarily at the mariner, its provisions affect a range of industries and services: manufacturers, packers, shippers, feeder services such as road and rail, and port authorities will find reliable advice on terminology, packing, labeling, classification, stowage, segregation, and emergency response action.
