IMDG Code 39-18 books

The IMDG Code as amended by Amendment 39-18 is mandatory as from 1 January 2020 but may be applied by administrations in whole or in part on a voluntary basis from 1 January 2019.  2019 is a transition year when either Amendment 38-16 or Amendment 39-18 can be used.

The IMDG Code lays down basic principles: detailed recommendations for individual substances, materials and articles, and a number of recommendations for good operational practice, including advice on terminology, packing, labelling, stowage, segregation and handling, and emergency response action.

The two-volume Code is divided into seven parts: 

Volume 1 (parts 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the Code) contains 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.
