The publication is one of an extensive series of briefing pamphlets and other documents developed by the International Technical Panel of ICHCA International Ltd (ITP). The pamphlet series is designed to provide all those involved in cargo handling, transport and related activities with practical advice and regulatory updates related to the safe handling and transport of cargoes.
The goal of the series, and a prime focus for the work of ICHCA International and the ITP in general, is to foster a better understanding of how to reduce damage, injury and loss during handling and transport operations, safeguarding people, cargo, equipment and property.
Richard Brough, head of ICHCA commented, “We are pleased to be able to offer an update to this important document with the sponsorship of Exis Technologies. Shipping dangerous goods in compliance with the IMDG Code is a subject that is extremely important to both of our organisations. We hope that this document will give people a good summary of the main aspects of the IMDG Code. ICHCA and Exis are available to offer practical advice, Hazcheck Systems for IMDG Code compliance and online IMDG Code training (15% discount for ICHCA members) to help companies to implement the IMDG Code effectively in their daily operations.”
