Testimonials

  • The course had a lot of information to absorb. We definitely feel we are in a better position to execute a compliant DG program. Any DG program will always be a work in progress due to the amount of information to work through and due to the amount of changes that occur. We have taken information courses in the past on DG which were not helpful because they just provided the information without explanation. We felt this training course taught us how to look for the right answers when we have a question as well as understanding the specifics for shipping Lithium Ion products.

  • GEMC was very knowledgeable on the subject matter with very relevant examples to our industry.

2020 IMDG Code Compliance Deadline Delayed

by Alyssa Williamson January 12, 2021

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) provided a status update on the forthcoming IMDG Code Amendment 40-20 (i.e., the 2020 Edition) this week.

IMO announced that mandatory compliance with the forthcoming IMDG Codeamendment will start on June 1, 2022. 

IMO plans to release Amendment 40–20 in early 2021. The new Code may be applied voluntarily after January 1, 2021. 

Under normal conditions, Amendment 40-20 would have been published in Fall 2020. Compliance with a new IMDG Code amendment is voluntary in the first year following publication (i.e., 2021) and mandatory in the second year following publication (i.e., after January 1, 2022).
