New edition of IMDG Code provided
Jan 1, 2009 12:00 PM
Many maritime countries have taken steps to regulate the carriage of marine pollutants in packaged form. Shippers can turn to the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code as the authoritative text on all aspects of handling packaged dangerous goods and marine pollutants by sea. The new edition of the IMDG Code is now available from Labelmaster. You can start using the publication from January 1, 2009, but usage is mandatory as of Jan. 1, 2010.
Included in the IMDG Code are detailed requirements for labeling, marking, and documentation, and training provisions for articles defined as dangerous. The code also includes packaging requirements for each article, as well as testing procedures for large and small packages.
First published in 1965, the 34th edition of the IMDG Code includes these new features:
EmS numbers are added to Column 15 of the Dangerous Goods List
Substantial changes to the Dangerous Goods List
Revisions to the construction and testing of packages and IBCs
New recommendations for the training needs of shore side personnel
The IMDG Code is available at $219 for a two-volume, perfect-bound set, or on a USB drive or CD at $495. The IMDG Code Supplement is also available for $109 each. Special pricing is available for five copies or more. To order, call 1-800-621-5808 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
