IMDG Code, 2016 Edition (2 volume set) IK200E
by IMO - International Maritime Organization
The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code is the worldwide standard for shipping dangerous goods by sea. Amendment 38-16 may be applied voluntarily from January 1, 2017 and becomes mandatory on January 1, 2018, for a period of two years.
It was developed as a uniform international code for the transport of dangerous goods by sea covering such matters as packing, container traffic and stowage, with particular reference to the segregation of incompatible substances.
The IMDG Code is a two-volume set, and a one-volume Supplement that focuses on fires and spillage emergencies is also available. The two-volume Code is also available electronically for download. The 2014 IMDG Supplement remains valid, and there will not be a 2016 edition.
French and Spanish Editions will be available from 2016.
