Within a continuing process of revision of publications that are relevant to the IMDG Code, the Emergency Response Procedures for Ships Carrying Dangerous Goods (EmS) Guide was further amended at the eighty-seventh session of the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) in May 2010, and the details are described in MSC.1/Circ.1360. Also at the eighty-seventh session of MSC, revised recommendations on the safe use of pesticides in ships and revised recommendations on the safe use of pesticides in ships applicable to the fumigation of cargo transport units were approved.
The Supplement also includes texts of the 'Medical First Aid Guide', descriptions of the reporting procedures for incidents involving dangerous goods, harmful substances and/or marine pollutants, the IMO/ILO/UNECE Guidelines for packing of cargo transport units, the International Code for the Safe Carriage of Packaged Irradiated Nuclear Fuel, Plutonium and High-Level Radioactive Wastes on board Ships and other appropriate Assembly resolutions, resolutions and circulars of the Maritime Safety Committee and circulars of the Facilitation Committee and of the Sub-Committee on Dangerous Goods, Solid Cargoes and Containers.
Note: The IMO/ILO/UNECE Guidelines for packing of cargo transport units are currently under review and have not yet been updated to reflect, where necessary, recent changes in the IMDG Code. Users of the Guidelines should refer to chapters 5.2 and 5.3 of the IMDG Code for the correct labels, placards, marks and signs.
