CLASSIFICATION AND SAFETY MARKS
|D O W N L O A D|
This is a good collection of the classification and safety marks relating to the marine transportation of the dangerous goods. As we know, the carriage of the dangerous goods is governed by the provisions of the IMDG Code, covering nine classes of the dangerous goods, namely the explosives and gases, liquids and solids of flammable nature, organic peroxides and oxidizing substances, infectious and poisonous substances, corrosive and radioactive substances and, finally, all others combined under the umbrella of miscellaneous substances.
The booklet starts with the general introduction to the requirements of the Code and a general outline of the above listed classes together with their characteristics imposing additional requirements of their marine transportation. This is followed by the clear and concise explanations of the terminology applied. The main part of the document provides the safety marks that shall be used when the dangerous goods are transported on board your vessel. Note that the idea of the authors was to provide general introduction and not the detailed specific instructions on the transportation. The provisions of the IMDG Code and other relevant publications shall be referred to at all times.
