The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code lays out the regulatory framework for all aspects of handling dangerous goods and marine pollutants in sea transport, but does not include all details of procedures for packing of dangerous goods or actions to take in the event of an emergency or accident involving personnel who handle goods at sea. This Supplement presents the publications associated with the IMDG Code that cover these aspects of the transport of dangerous goods.
The 2018 edition of the Supplement features:
• The Revised EmS Guide
• The Medical First Aid Guide
• Recommendations on the safe use of pesticides in ships
• The INF Code
• Other appropriate resolutions and circulars pertaining to the transport of dangerous goods
The IMDG Code Supplement should be of interest to maritime administrations, shipping companies, manufacturers, packers, shippers, feeder services such as road and rail, and port authorities.
