What is the IMO IMDG Code?
The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code was first published by International Maritime Organisation (IMO) in 1965 and is now updated every two years. Since January 2004 the Code has been mandatory for SOLAS (Safety Of Life At Sea convention) signatory states, effectively making it a global rulebook for the sea transport of dangerous goods. Although it is directed primarily at sea transport, the provisions of the Code may affect a whole range of industries and services. Manufacturers, packers, shippers, feeder services such as road and rail and port authorities will find authoritative advice on classification, stowage, segregation, packing, labelling, terminology and emergency response action.
In addition to publishing the printed version of the Code, IMO has produced the digital versions to meet the need for fast, accurate information retrieval and to cater for the differing needs of users.
Which is the current IMDG Code Amendment?
Amendment 41-22 can be used on an optional basis from 1 January 2023. It becomes mandatory as from 1 January 2024 and is valid until 31 December 2025. See the Amendment Cycle for more information.
