HazMat Transportation - Part 6d - Carrier Requirements - Water (IMDG) (US)
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), along with other international and United Nations agencies, publishes hazardous materials or dangerous goods regulations to help guide us in the safe transport of hazardous materials. In this module, we'll focus on the actions we can take to protect our waters and marine life when transporting hazardous materials by any type of vessel or ship. Shippers – as well as carriers, masters, agents and charterers of vessels – must be familiar and comply with the Hazardous Materials Regulations (or HMR) governing the transportation of hazardous materials on commercial, domestic and foreign vessels in U.S. waters.
