IMDG Code Amendments – Delay in Implementation



In view of the exceptional circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 virus this year, and the ensuing disruption and delay caused to the IMO meeting schedule, Amendment 40-20 of the IMDG Code will become mandatory from 1 June 2022 but may be applied by Administrations in whole or in part on a voluntary basis from 1 January 2021.

Both the hard copy versions and the web subscription product, which will include Amendment 40-20, will be published in January, 2021.
