To address a recent rise in fires aboard shipping vessels, major carriers have announced new fines and security procedures aimed at reducing the number of misdeclared hazardous cargo shipments.
Often, higher-ups fundamentally misunderstand the value that environmental stewardship and compliance brings to the organization. They may not be receptive to hiring a consultant to help streamline compliance for your organization. To get buy in from skeptics, it can help to explain the costs of noncompliance in real terms.
What happens when you have an article that contains dangerous goods, but that article is not identified by name in the regulations, like a fuel pump (pictured below) or a piece of lab equipment?
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) this fall will publish a new edition of its International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code), the manual used by hazmat vessel shippers to ensure compliance with US and international hazardous materials/dangerous goods transport requirements.
The US Coast Guard today announced increased civil penalties for maritime violations, including hazardous substance and oil discharges and hazardous materials violations.
A quick reminder as we start the new year: If you package dangerous goods for air or vessel transport, be sure you have the latest editions of the IATA DGR and the IMDG Code at the ready. New editions of both the air shipping and vessel shipping manuals took effect on January 1.
In December, Lion Technology will present the final hazmat training workshops of the year Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Chicago.
Join us for expert-led training to meet DOT, IATA, and IMDG training mandates in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Houston, Dallas, Pittsburgh, and Detroit in June 2017!
In the notice issued today, February 27, PHMSA states that hazmat inspectors will not take enforcement action against any offeror or carrier who are properly using the 2017-18 versions of the IMDG Code or ICAO Technical Instructions (TI) when all or part of the transportation is by air or vessel.
To help shippers protect personnel and maintain full compliance with the new DOT, IATA, and IMDG shipping regulations for 2017, Lion will present nationally trusted DG shipper training in Nashville, Charlotte, Houston, and more in February and March.
