It was developed as a uniform international code for the transport of dangerous goods by sea covering such matters as packing, container traffic and stowage, with particular reference to the segregation of incompatible substances.
The IMDG Code is a two-volume set, and a one-volume Supplement that focuses on fires and spillage emergencies is also available. The two-volume Code is also available electronically for download. There is a 2018 edition of the Supplement.
