IMDG CODE 2018
|D O W N L O A D|
This is the very latest official edition of the IMDG Code by IMO, incorporating the amendment no. 39-18. The set is made of two volumes. The general content and arrangement of the material is pretty standard and does not significantly differ from the previous edition of the Code.
The opening art of the first volume provides the provisional and definitions of the Code together with the training requirements, while the following part addresses the classification of the dangerous goods, giving necessary information about each of the nine classes, from explosives to the miscellaneous dangerous and environmentally hazardous substances.
The third and four parts of the document cover the provisions and exceptions, and tank and packing provisions, respectively. The remaining parts of the Volume 1 address the consignment procedures; construction and testing of the packaging used for the transportation and so many other important topics.
The content of the second volume supplements the one of the first document. In short, the Code is a must-have document on board any ship engaged in the marine transportation of the dangerous goods and its provisions shall be complied with at all times.
