Amendment 37-14 expired on December 31, 2017 so if your job role is affected by the Code or you are coming up for refresher training you should complete Amendment 38 as this is the most up to date course. Amendment 38-16 is valid until December 31, 2019 but AlertForce is now offering the latest version IMDG 39-18 which expires Dec 31 2021.

Download Course & Compliance Information

IMDG Code training is required for all persons who transport dangerous goods according to chapter 1.3 of the IMO. The training is recommended for any shore-side personnel who are involved with dangerous goods in their job role.

  • Requirements:
  • Computer
  • Internet Access
  • IMDG Code access (provided as part of the course)

Why IMDG training is required by law?

Read more Read less

In short yes if your business has shore-side personnel that come into contact with dangerous goods by sea then Marine Order 41 (Carriage of dangerous goods) 2017 mandates training.

Legislation is here:

https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/F2017L01578

 

21        Requirements for training

        (1)     An employer of a person, other than a seafarer, engaged in any activity relating to the handling, packing, stowing and carriage of dangerous goods must ensure that the employee is given training, including refresher training, in accordance with Chapter 1.3 of the IMDG Code.

Penalty:     50 penalty units.

Note   Chapter 1.3 of the IMDG Code requires general awareness or familiarisation training and function-specific training for shore-based personnel.

        (2)     The employer of a person mentioned in subsection (1) must also ensure that the following function-specific training is provided as part of the person’s training according to her or his responsibilities:

(a)   packing dangerous goods in packages;

(b)   marking, labelling or placarding dangerous goods;

(c)   loading or unloading cargo transport units;

(d)   preparing transport documents for dangerous goods.

Note   The training providers in Australia that provide training courses recognised by AMSA as accepted training courses are listed on the AMSA website at http://www.amsa.gov.au.

        (3)     The employer must keep evidence of training that an employee or contractor of the employer receives for subsection (1) for at least 5 years after the training occurred.

Penalty:     50 penalty units.

        (4)     An offence against subsection (1) or (3) is a strict liability offence.

        (5)     A person is liable to a civil penalty if the person contravenes subsection (1) or (3).

Civil penalty:        50 penalty units.

What are the three types of IMDG Code training?

Read more Read less
  • General Awareness- This will familiarise the staff with IMDG Code requirements.
  • Function-Specific Training- This is designed to help those with specific roles and responsibilities. Each one is outlined by the IMDG code.
  • Full In-Depth Course- This is an advanced level course that provides detailed content for all function-specific modules.

 

In January 2015; Amendment 37 became effective. By the beginning of 2016 it will become a mandatory part of your training. It offers a two-volume set that was developed to cover fires and spillage emergencies, but also focuses on:

 

  • Container Traffic
  • Packing
  • Segregation of Incompatible Substances
  • Stowage

 

Taking advantage of this training will allow companies to follow the IMDG Code more effectively. There will be tests at the end of each module in order to ensure that each student is competent. However, students can take these courses at their own pace, since there are no timeframes that are mandatory.
It’s an open-book course that allows students to reference the IMDG Code throughout the training.
You will find that our training provides increased operational flexibility and a reduced cost. You can contact AlertForce for a quote based upon your training requirements.

 

The sooner you get started the easier it will be for your staff to become more efficient. AlertForce can help them reach these plateaus and give you all the necessary services to become more successful when transporting dangerous goods by sea.

What is the latest version of IMDG Dangerous Goods Training?

Read more Read less
    In short version 38-16 is the current version. Amendment 39-18 comes into force on January 1, 2020 but will be available 12 months prior to that
    Background

From January 1, 2010, the IMDG Code Dangerous Goods training has been mandatory for all staff involved in dangerous goods transport by sea. On 1st January, 2012, Amendment 34 expired and Amendment 35 became the requirement. On January 1st, 2013 Amendment 36 came into being and that expired at the end of 2015. Amendment 37-14 took its place and lasted until the end of 2017. Amendment 38-16 is now the most current course and will be current up until Dec 31, 2019.

In Australia, this mandatory training is regulated by AMSA, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority. Companies failing to comply with these new DG regulations risk delays, rejected consignments, fines and/or a damaged reputation.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) enforces the training in Australia. If your company fails to adhere to these new rules then it could create delays, fines, or rejected consignments. Any of these can result in a damaged reputation.

The AlertForce IMDG Code dangerous goods training program is accepted by AMSA and delivers cost-effective compliance for all shore-side sectors including:

      • Shippers and freight forwarders
      • Container packers and consolidators
      • Shipping line operations and booking staff
      • Stevedores
      • Port staff
      • Cargo surveyors

Does the training authorise staff to fill out AMSA's multimodal dangerous goods forms (MO41)?

Read more Read less

In Australia transporting hazardous substances and dangerous goods is regulated by AMSA. Companies must monitor dangerous goods movements at all times via the correct documentation.

As such if you are a consignor who sends dangerous goods internationally you MUST ensure the dangerous goods transport documents are correctly filled out and accompany your freight. The IMDG Code training is what you need to enable staff to produce AMSA’s MO41 form.
