Since 1965 the IMDG Code has set the principals for the transport of dangerous goods by sea and it is published by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), for whom Labeline is a leading authorised distributor.

Every two years the 2-volume publication is updated and amended. The 39th Amendment (2018) of the IMDG Code will come into force on 1 January 2020 for two years and may be applied voluntarily from 1 January 2019.

The IMDG Code is divided into seven parts over two volumes.

Volume 1 contains (parts 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the Code) with sections on:

  • General provisions, definitions, training.
  • Classification.
  • Packing and Tank Provisions.
  • Consignment Procedures.
  • Construction and Testing of packagings, IBCs, large packagings, portable tanks, MEGCs and road tank vehicles.
  • Transport Operations.

Volume 2 contains part 3 (Dangerous Goods List, special provisions and exceptions), appendix A (generic and N.O.S. Proper Shipping Names), appendix B (Glossary of terms) and an index.


There is also an IMDG Supplement to this biennial’s publication which includes details of procedures for packing of dangerous goods or actions to take in the event of spillages, emergencies, fires or accidents involving personnel who handle goods at sea.
