Why Choose this Training Course?
Learn how to apply appropriate safety precautions and understand the legal requirements and operational restrictions involved in shipping dangerous goods by vessel transport. Gain a detailed understanding of International Maritime Dangerous Good (IMDG) Code regulations and practical knowledge of Code requirements, in relation to classification, packaging, vehicle packing and vessel stowage.
Amendment 39-18 of the Code is mandatory as from 1 January 2020 but may be applied by Administrations in whole or in part on a voluntary basis from 1 January 2019.
The IMDG training rules are recommended for shore-based personnel. However, vessel carriers often require compliance with them as a condition of accepting your shipments. These rules apply in addition to the US DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations, which require Hazmat employees to be trained on all applicable modal rules.
This PetroKnowledge Maritime dangerous goods training course helps promote the safety of workers, the public and the environment, since using improper procedures when shipping these materials can result in serious harm. Failure to comply with the IMDG Code can result in civil penalties, rejected shipments, incidents in transit, and carrier blacklisting, so it’s important for employees to get the training and certification they need.
