IMDG Code Amendment 39-18

IMDG code Amendment 39-18 entered into force on 1 January 2019. The regulations of this amendment can be used parallel with Amendment 38-16. Application of the Amendment 38-16 regulations will end on 31 December 2019, after which only the regulations according to IMDG code Amendment 39-18 will be mandatory in force.

We would like to point out that the shippers/consignors are responsible for ensuring that dangerous goods offered for shipment are classified and declared in accordance with the valid regulations. The shipper* must also ensure that the dangerous substances are packed, marked and documented, and the cargo transport units placarded according to the IMDG Code.
