In the 2002 edition of the IMDG Code, training was introduced for the first time.
The IMO Member Governments recognised that the safe transport of dangerous goods
by sea is dependent upon the

involved, of the risks involved
and on a detailed understanding
of the IMDG Code requirements.
The training requirements
became mandatory with
IMDG Code reference: 1.3
