Transporting Dangerous Goods The International Maritime Organization (IMO) creates and maintains the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code), which is the international standard for packing and shipping hazardous materials by vessel. The IMO, which is an agency within the United Nations, publishes an updated IMDG Code Book every two years. Hazmat vessel shippers in the US should be aware that these vessel shipping rules are not found in the DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations, but must be complied with for international shipments. Attending the DOT Hazmat (Ground) training class is a prerequisite. A 20-questions exam is administered at the conclusion of the course. By Air International Air Transport Association (IATA)
There are no currently scheduled classes, however PTA can conduct this course for groups either at our training center or onsite at a client's facility. Contact Greg Ashman for further information.
