- Resources & Information
Many maritime countries have taken steps to regulate the carriage of dangerous goods by sea, based on the safety considerations set out in parts A and A-1 of chapter VII of the 1974 SOLAS Convention, as amended. More recently, as marine pollution has become a serious concern, countries have taken further steps to regulate the carriage of marine pollutants, as described in Annex III of MARPOL. The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code, which was first published in 1965, amplifies the requirements of both Conventions and has become the standard guide to all aspects of handling dangerous goods and marine pollutants in sea transport.
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, labelling, 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 may 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, labelling, classification, stowage, segregation, and emergency response action.

I had a few questions about the product I was purchasing and I was super impressed with Kelsey H's response time. I could have purchased from several overseas companies but purposely chose American Nautical Services so I could buy from an American company.
Purchased access to the online IMDG code books and received my credentials quicker than expected.
The customer service was very nice and quick to respond to my inquiries!
Ordering and checkout was super easy! Love the updated website and that you were able to add our company's quantity pricing to my account so I can go in and order when needed.
We ordered the IMDG web version and as such got a very fast turnaround service!
