The handbook provides theoretical and practical guidance on the rules to shipping dangerous goods by sea. It also outlines the responsibilities of shore and ship based personnel and how these requirements may be enforced through port State control inspections or by action of the ‘competent authority’.

The development of dangerous goods transport codes has been driven by the need for a safe transport chain designed to protect the safety of those involved, the general public and the environment.

The handbook is available to purchase for A$20 (plus GST and postage) or for orders of 100 or more A$15 each (plus GST and postage).
