The International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code is a two volume set. The Code provides basic principles with recommendations for individual substances, materials and articles, and a number of recommendations for operational practice, including advice on terminology, packing, labeling, stowage, segregation and handling, and emergency response action.
The IMDG Code itself doesn't 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.
