Marine Pollutants also known in some circumstances as Environmentally Hazardous Substances, are now exempted from the majority of dangerous goods provisions in packages of 5 L or 5 kg net mass, or less.

Training in the provisions of the IMDG Code is a mandatory requirement for those offering dangerous goods for transport via sea.

If you require training, you may be interested in our online IMDG Code awareness course or one of our open training courses.
