Since 1965, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has published a major international instrument known as the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code). This Code is for the carriage of dangerous goods of any kind by sea. It addresses matters such as packing and container stowage, with particular reference to the segregation of incompatible substances. The IMO provisions for radioactive material are based on the IAEA Regulations. The IMDG Code offers guidance to those involved in the handling and transport of radioactive materials during sea transport.
