Japan to Align Maritime Transport Rules for Dangerous Goods with IMDG Code 2022 Edition

New rules propose that permission from the Minister will not be required for the transport of dangerous goods with a mass over 400 kg in a certain container exempted from examination.

Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLITT) is consulting on the proposed updates of the Regulations for Transport and Storage of Dangerous Goods by Ships (hereinafter referred to as the Regulations) and the Standards Concerning the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Ships (hereinafter referred to as the Standards), aiming to align Japan’s rules for transport of dangerous goods (TDG) by ships with the international rules - International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code)*. The consultation will end on November 28, 2022. Once approved, they are expected to be officially released in late December 2022 and take effect from January 2023.
