For the truly skilled in a field, they can usually attribute their comprehension of the subject to various books and education materials. Within these materials are a wealth of information that clarifies questions that the most seasoned professionals within that field may have.
Our company, Air Sea Containers, understands that comprehension of IMO and IATA publications are paramount for success for each business in the field. We’re an official distributor of IMO and IATA publications, which allows our company to sell these essential texts at a discount.
They’re four different items that we recommended selecting, which are the following:
- IATA Products;
- IMO Regulations (IMDG Code, SOLAS, IAMSAR, MARPOL, and More);
- Emergency Response Guidebook – ERG Book; and,
- CFR 49 – Code of Federal Regulations Title 49
Each of these texts set the standards that lead to safety. IATA, for instance, works closely with local governments, including the ICAO, where they develop regulations to ensure rules and guidelines used for transportation of dangerous goods are efficient and effective. These products often come in various prominent languages.
IATA Products can come in different forms, depending on the preference of the consumer. One of our leading products is the 2016 57th Edition IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations – Spiral Bound – (English). This IATA handbook helps in the classification, documentation, labeling and marking in dangerous good shipments — based on regulation for international and national airline requirements. In the past 50 years, this text is the go-to book for dangerous goods regulation. The following is from the product description:
This book of regulations published by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) is essential for anyone who ships dangerous goods by air. Updated annually to incorporate the latest international regulations. The IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations is the only user manual for shipping dangerous goods by air recognized by the World’s Airlines–used by more than 200 airlines. Covers every facet of national and international shipping regulations, including a comprehensive Dangerous Goods list detailing Proper Shipping Names and labeling requirements, packing requirements, training guidelines and up-to-date information on shipping forms.
For best convenience, rush order shipping can be done if this item is required by a certain date, whether the customer is a regular or a new client. Conversely, the same item can be purchased in a CD-ROM format — 2015/2016 IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations 57th Edition (eDGR) CD-ROM (English). The former, currently priced at $281.99 — which is nearly a 10 percent discount — is less expensive than the latter by $53.01.
Also from the CD-ROM format, an item to consider is the 2016 Lithium Battery Shipping Guidelines CD-ROM. As many industry insiders are aware, lithium batteries have become the preferred energy source for many of today’s top new and bestselling products. However, these batteries are considered dangerous goods, and it is imperative that their transportation comply with transport regulation. The 2016 Lithium Battery Shipping Guidelines CD-ROM will provide guidelines and more for the purchaser of the product. It is currently priced at $195.
Another excellent educational product to consider is the Life-Saving Appliances, 2010 Edition from the IMO Regulations (IMDG Code, SOLAS, IAMSAR, MARPOL, and More) category. Information within pertains to The International Life-Saving Appliance (LSA) Code, which was adopted by the IMO#s Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) in June 1996. The book contains the following information:
It provides international requirements for the life-saving appliances required by chapter III of the 1974 SOLAS Convention, including personal life-saving appliances, such as lifebuoys, lifejackets, immersion suits, anti-exposure suits and thermal protective aids; visual aids, such as parachute flares, hand flares and buoyant smoke signals; survival craft, such as life rafts and lifeboats; rescue boats; launching and embarkation appliances and marine evacuation systems line throwing appliances; and general alarm and public address systems.
It is currently priced at $75.99.
From the Emergency Response Guidebook – ERG Book category, consider the 2016 Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG), Spiral Bound, Regular size, 5½”×7½”, currently priced at a over a 50 percent discount for eight dollars. It was developed in combination with the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation of Mexico (SCT), Transport Canada, and the US Department of Transportation for use by emergency services personnel, such as police and firefighters. According to its description, it is used as a guide “to aid first responders in (1) quickly identifying the specific or generic classification of the material(s) involved in the incident, and (2) protecting themselves and the general public during this initial response phase of the incident.” This text is updated every three to four years.
Lastly, considered the CFR Title 49 – 2-vol set, Parts 100-177 and Parts 178-199., (2015 Edition, Spiral Bound). This text holds high value in handling hazardous material or waste, for shippers, carriers or freight forwarders. The text consisting of Title 49, covers regulations for domestic transportation. It is issued by the US Department of Transportation, and the text includes all modes of transportation — ocean, rail, air and highway.
