As new products enter the market, the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code is continually updated to ensure that dangerous goods are transported with the minimum risk.

This two part series is designed to introduce the changes under Amendment 35 -10 to those already familiar with the existing IMDG Code. At the same time, the programmes describe the basic principles of the Codeas use to those new to the transport of Dangerous Goods by sea.

Part Two illustrates how the IMDG Code, in conjunction with an accurate manifest and stowage plan, can be navigated to find the necessary information to deal with an emergency. In one exercise on board a RoRo vessel, the shipas personnel and the shore authorities are involved in dealing with a spillage incident in port. In another exercise, a fire in a container involving dangerous goods is successfully extinguished.
