Hazcheck Online Amdt 40-20 is an IMDG Code web-based annual subscription service for shippers of dangerous goods by sea. It automatically takes you through the process of checking a dangerous goods load for shipment in accordance with the IMDG Code requirements. Identify stowage and segregation conflicts and check packaging requirements. A Dangerous Goods Note (DGN) is produced when the shipment is correct.

Easy to use and accessible from any PC, laptop or tablet device with an internet connection. A wide variety of customers use the system globally including shipping agents, chemical manufacturers, freight forwarders and logistics companies.

Subscription options

There are two subscription types to choose from, based on the number of process load validations that you would like to include with your annual subscription.

  • Hazcheck Online STANDARD including 100 process load validations
  • Hazcheck Online GOLD including 500 process load validations

The IMDG Code validation check confirms that all the substances in the load are compatible and may be carried together. Following validation (even if there is only one substance in the load) you can go on to check packaging and produce a dangerous goods note. Hazcheck Online subscriptions pricing is based on the number of validations included.

Amendment 40-20 data is available to use in Hazcheck Online. This data has now been updated with the May 2022 Corrigenda. The Amendment cycle can be seen here.
