Who Should Attend

All shore-based personnel and individuals involved in the handling, packaging, transporting, offering, acceptance, loading and unloading of Dangerous Goods should have the proper training to do so (IMDG Code 1.3.1.1). Additionally, anyone involved in the transportation of hazardous materials within the United States must be properly trained to do so, under the requirements described in Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR), Subpart H, governed by the United States Department of Transportation.

Shippers and freight forwarders (brokers) of Dangerous Goods to be transported by vessel must comply with training requirements and regulatory guidelines of the IMDG Code, often as a condition for vessel carriers to accept shipments of Dangerous Goods and hazardous materials for ocean transport. BDG provides initial and recurrent training courses to meet these requirements.
