What is IMDG Code ?
IMDG Code or International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code is accepted as an international guideline to the safe transportation or shipment of dangerous goods or hazardous materials by water on vessel.

It is recommended to governments for adoption or for use as the basis for national regulations.

It contains advice on terminology, packaging, labeling, placarding, markings, stowage, segregation, handling, and emergency response.

The code is updated and maintained by the Carriage of Cargo and Containers (CCC), a formerly DSC Sub-Committee of the International Maritime Organization every 2 years.
What is a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) or Safety Data Sheet (SDS) ?
A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) or Safety Data Sheet (SDS) is a document that contains information on the potential hazards (health, fire, reactivity and environmental) and how to work safely with the chemical product. It is an essential starting point for the development of a complete health and safety program. It also contains information on the use, storage, handling and emergency procedures all related to the hazards of material.

The MSDS or SDS contains much more information about the material than the label. MSDSs or SDSs are prepared by the supplier or manufacturer of the material. It is intended to tell what the hazards of the product are, how to use the product safely, what to expect if the recommendations are not followed, what to do if accidents occur, how to recognize symptoms of overexposure, and what to do if such incidents occur.
