IMDG (IMO) Shipping by Vessel

Summary

There are a number of important regulations and requirements to adhere to when shipping dangerous goods by sea. These laws and regulations are governed by, and codified in, the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code, also known as the IMDG code. This is in addition to Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR), specifically the section known as the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) if shipping to, from, and within the U.S. and its territories. While the main purpose of these regulations is to ensure crew member safety during the transportation of dangerous goods by sea, they also serve to help mitigate marine pollution.

Hazmat University is proud to offer two online courses that comply with the training requirements for IMDG certification: Initial and Recurrent. These courses cover the proper identification, classification, documentation, labeling, marking, packaging, placarding, segregation, safety and security of hazardous materials to be shipped internationally by vessel.

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) maintains strict regulation of how dangerous goods can be shipped by sea. This applies to hazmat employees involved in any part of the shipping process, from those who document the goods to those who package them to those who oversee the safety of entire vessels.

This means that being properly trained in the transport of dangerous goods by sea not only improves the safety and efficiency of your organization, which leads to a decrease in wasted time and resources and an increase in revenue, but it is also vital to preventing fines for lack of compliance.

Hazmat University allows your employees to quickly and easily become IMDG-trained or to seamlessly maintain their certification. This means instant proof of course completion and no lag between an employee becoming certified and starting or continuing to handle dangerous goods.

If you are involved in the shipping and handling of lithium batteries, it is highly recommended that you also purchase our Supplemental Lithium Batteries Training, which is available in this store. It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure their employees are trained commensurate with their responsibilities and that they may need additional training.
