INTERNATIONAL MARITIME DANGEROUS GOODS CODES
The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) code was published for the first time by the International Maritime Organisation in 1965 and it is updated every two years. As of January 2004, this Code is obligatory for the states who signed the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), effectively making it a global regulation for maritime transportation of dangerous goods.
While it mainly targets maritime transportation, the Code provisions actually regard a whole range of industries and services. Producers, packers, carriers, transport services like the road and rail authorities and port authorities will find in it authoritative recommendations for the classification, storage, segregation, packing, labelling, terminology and emergency response measures.
