IMDG Code Amendment 40-20 Implementation Delayed until June 2022

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has delayed the effective date of Amendment 40-20 of the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code until June 1, 2022. IMO stated that delays in the IMO meeting schedule caused by the COVID-19 pandemic prompted them to delay the release of Amendment 40-20 until early in 2021.

Voluntary compliance with Amendment 40-20 is allowed as of January 1, 2021, or once the book is released. While IMO will delay mandatory compliance with amendment 40-20 until June 1, 2022, it is important to check with your carrier about when they will expect compliance with the new amendment.
