The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) has been developed as an international code for the transport of dangerous goods by sea and deals with regulatory issues such as classification, packaging, labelling, container traffic and stowage, with particular reference to the separation of incompatible substances.

Since its adoption by the 4th IMO (International Maritime Organization) session in 1965, the IMDG Code has been updated every two years.

The 2014 revision (Amendment 37-14) became mandatory on 1 January 2016 and could be adopted on a voluntary basis as early as 2015.
