The IMDG Code, 2014 Edition (stock due in December 2014) comes into force on 1 January 2016 for two years and may be applied voluntarily as from 1 January 2015.
The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code is the worldwide standard for shipping dangerous goods by sea. Amendment 37-14 is effective January 1, 2015 and becomes mandatory on January 1, 2016.
The IMDG Code is written in conjunction with government regulations under the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) and was developed as a uniform international code for the transport of dangerous goods by sea covering such matters as packing, container traffic and stowage, with particular reference to the segregation of incompatible substances.
Regulating the carriage of dangerous goods
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 ofthe 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 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.
The IMDG Code as originally amended was recommended to governments as the basis for national regulations by which the requirements of SOLAS 1974 and MARPOL Annex III were effected, but the Code as amended by Amendments 35, 36 and 37 is now mandatory.
What’s in it
The 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.
