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

Since its implementation by the fourth meeting of the IMO (International Maritime Organisation) in 1965, the IMDG code is updated every two years.

The 2014 revision (Amendment 37-14), became mandatory as of January 1, 2016 and was implementable on a voluntary basis as of 2015.
