Lion Technology's 2020 webinar schedule of hazardous materials/dangerous goods and RCRA hazardous waste training is in full swing! Join us to from wherever you are to simplify your compliance responsibilities.
At Lion, we get a lot of questions about shipping marine pollutants. Specifically, when are they regulated and are there any reliefs for them? It can get a little confusing, because the answer will differ depending on the mode of transport. Something that is not a marine pollutant for a ground shipment could very well be a marine pollutant when shipped by vessel.
Last month, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) released corrigenda to the 2018 edition to correct errors in Volumes 1 and 2 of the text.
Lloyd’s List and its research counterparts will host an interactive forum on November 14 to tackle shortfalls in dangerous goods supply-chain management strategies.
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.
