Dangerous goods are substances that may pose an immediate hazard to people, property or the environment.You need to understand their properties when using, storing, handling or transporting them safely.

The consequence can be dramatic when you fail to manage the risks.

From January 2004 the code has been mandatory for SOLAS (Safety of Life at sea Convention) signatory states and under the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL)
