What is the IMDG Code?

The IMDG Code, established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), is a global standard that guides the safe transport of dangerous goods via sea. It specifies the requirements for packaging, handling, and stowing materials, aiming to prevent accidents and protect marine environments.
Training in the IMDG Code is essential for ship operators, crew, and port personnel to ensure they handle dangerous goods safely and comply with legal requirements. Proper training reduces the risk of maritime accidents, which can have severe environmental and economic impacts.
