The (IMDG Code) lays out the regulatory framework for all aspects of handling dangerous goods and marine pollutants in sea transport, but does not include all details of procedures for packing of dangerous goods or actions to take in the event of an emergency or accident involving personnel who handle goods at sea. This Supplement presents the publications associated with the IMDG Code that cover these aspects of the transport of dangerous goods.

The 2022 edition of the Supplement features:

  • the Revised Emergency Response Procedures for Ships Carrying Dangerous Goods (EmS Guide), taking into account Amendment 41-22 to the IMDG Code;
  • the Medical First Aid Guide for Use in Accidents involving Dangerous Goods (MFAG);
  • the Reporting procedures;
  • the Recommendations on the safe use of pesticides in ships;
  • the International Code for the Safe Carriage of Packaged Irradiated Nuclear Fuel, Plutonium and High-Level Radioactive Wastes on board Ships (INF Code); and
  • other appropriate resolutions and circulars pertaining to the transport of dangerous goods, including (MSC.1/Circ.1649) and the (MSC.1/Circ.1650).

The IMDG Code Supplement should be of interest to maritime administrations, shipping companies, manufacturers, packers, shippers, feeder services such as road and rail, and port authorities.
