Certified Dangerous Goods Professional – Code CDGP


If you are an experienced dangerous goods professional working in international transport, the CDGP credential is the ideal vocational qualification for you.  It recognises that you have an understanding of the multimodal Dangerous Goods (DG) regulations, far beyond the minimum requirements.

The CDGP is being increasingly recognised across industry and in a growing number of countries.  It has become the global gold standard for multimodal competence in the transport of DG.  The accreditation is now recognised in the UK and around the world under the Multilateral Recognition Arrangement (MLA) of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF).

The qualification is awarded by the Institute of Hazardous Materials Management (IHMM) to industry professionals who meet eligibility requirements and pass a rigorous written examination.  Labeline is the IHMM’s first authorised Educational Affiliate in Europe.

Many multinational businesses and organisations will expect their senior DG professionals to have an IHMM qualification.
