Principles of the IMDG Code

The IMDG Code is based on an internationally agreed system which:

 Groups dangerous goods together based on the hazards they  

   present in transport (classification).

 Contains the dangerous goods in packagings/tanks which are of

   appropriate strength and which will prevent the goods escaping.

 Uses hazard warning labels and other identifying marks to identify

   dangerous goods in transport.

 Requires standard documentation to be provided when

   dangerous goods are being transported.

 Lays down principles for ensuring that dangerous goods which will

   react dangerously together are kept apart.

 Lays down principles for where to place dangerous goods on

   board ship to ensure safe transport.

 Provides emergency response advice for dangerous goods

   involved in a fire or spillage on board ship.
