IMDG Code training became mandatory from 1 January 2010 for all shore-side staff involved in dangerous goods transport by sea. Exis has developed a cost-effective training tool, in collaboration with the International Maritime Organisation, which enables shore side sectors to receive high quality training that complies with the IMDG Code training requirements.
Shore side staff requiring IMDG Code training include:
Shippers and forwarders, container packers and consolidators, shipping line operations and booking staff, stevedores and port staff.
