What’s New for the 2016 IMDG Code?
The 2016 IMDG Code of will be out in Fall/Winter 2016. The voluntary IMDG Code compliance period is in effect as of January 1, 2017, and mandatory compliance starts January 1, 2018.
The changes to the IMDG Code are very similar to those in the 2017 International Air Transport Association Dangerous Goods Regulations (IATA DGR), as both the IATA DGR and IMDG Code reflect the latest updates to dangerous goods standards developed at the United Nations.
Changes for hazmat vessel shippers in the 2016 IMDG Code include:
- New minimum height requirement for the OVERPACK mark (12 mm)
- New requirements for marking and labeling lithium battery shipments
- New packing instructions for certain types of engines and prototype/low-production runs of lithium cells and batteries
- New large packing instruction LP200 for aerosols
- A number of updates to the IMDG Code Dangerous Goods List

I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
As always, Lion never disappoints
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
I had a positive experience utilizing this educational program. It was very informative, convenient, and rewarding from a career perspective.
The instructor had knowledge of regulations and understanding of real-world situations. The presentation style was engaging and fostered a positive atmosphere for information sharing.
Safety & Environmental Compliance Officer
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
Director of Regulatory Affairs
Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.
The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
