Are you involved in the transport of dangerous goods? In the port of Antwerp, the handling of dangerous goods is subject to all kinds of legislation. Handling includes various operations: supply, discharge, loading, transhipment, ineterim storage and retaining on board. It is important that dangerous goods can be located in the port at any time.
The IMO aims to reduce the number of violations found during inspections of dangerous goods containers. The organization hence stipulates in the IMDG code that everyone involved in the transport of dangerous goods needs to be appropriately trained. This measure will also drastically reduce the risk of fires on board, environmental disasters, and danger to people at sea and on shore.
By obtaining an IMDG-certificate, you’re halfway there. With your IMDG-certificate you can register for this training: Antwerp Port Byelaws for the handling of dangerous cargoes.
For everybody participating in the maritime transport of dangerous goods in Antwerp.
There is no special knowledge required. However you must be able to present a valid IMDG-certificate obtained from an accredited provider.
The certificates may be up to 5 years old. This means that you must have followed a refresher course before the certificate expires. If your certificate expires before you start the update session, you are obliged to follow the basic training again.
