International Maritime Dangerous Goods

The IMDG Code requires certain provisions to be followed whenever dangerous goods are shipped by sea.


These provisions require that dangerous goods are correctly and safely:

  • Classified and identified

  • Packed

  • Marked, labelled and placarded

  • Documented

  • Stowed on board the vessel

  • Segregated from other goods with which they may react dangerously


Appropriate emergency response information must be made available.


The Code also contains security requirements designed to minimise the opportunity for terrorists to access and misuse dangerous goods. Appropriate training must be given to all personnel involved in the transport of dangerous goods by sea.
