The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code is the recognized code of practice for the safe carriage of dangerous goods by sea. Manufacturers, packagers, shippers, stowers, carriers, and others involved throughout the supply chain must adhere to the provisions in the IMDG Code when dealing with cargo to be transported all or in part by ship. The IMDG Code contains the Dangerous Goods List, a list of the dangerous goods most commonly carried by sea. The list covers, as far as practicable, all dangerous substances of commercial importance. This course will introduce you to the IMDG Code Dangerous Goods List, and will help acquaint you with IMDG Code packing and tank provisions for dangerous goods containers.
This IMDG course was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
