IMO Dangerous Good code with complete UN database for practical usage
by DBG Nautical
This app is all about the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG), and how these goods must be safely stowed and transported on board of a ship. Useful for both students of the IMDG code as for seafarers on board of their ship.
The placard browser explains the 9 classes of dangerous goods, and contains also a number of examples of labeling on packages and containers. We also made reference to the EmS Fire and Spillage codes. These codes are click-able and in a pop-up the F and S schedules are available.
The segregation tool lets you check segregation between 2 IMO class goods and is the equivalent of the IMDG Code 37-14 Segregation Table, including the Class 1 compatibility check.
This app further contains the complete IMO Dangerous Goods database, compliant with the IMO Amdt 38-16 (mandatory as from Jan 1, 2018). This database can be queried with the UN number or the Proper Shipping Name (PSN), available in English, French and German. The output gives most of the relevant information an active seafarer needs to know, in order to handle dangerous cargo according to the Code.
Next we added a tool to check ISO 6346 numbers of seagoing containers, either to calculate the check-digit or to check the validity of a complete number.
The theory section contains a nice overview of the IMDG code, in different chapters, ideally for students of the code, but also useful as a reference.
