hazmat transportation vesselThe International Vessel Operators Dangerous Goods Association (IVODGA) is an international organization comprised of representatives of the ocean common carriers of the world, operating under the flags of several nations, dedicated to improving the understanding and uniform application of rules and regulations governing maritime Hazardous Materials / Dangerous Goods Transportation, including the IMDG Code. Collectively, IVODGA members are responsible for the safe transportation of over 75% of the ocean borne container traffic in the US trades.

IVODGA's primary focus is to foster the safe handling of hazardous materials, as well as to offer the expertise of the ocean carriers in forging regulatory development. IVODGA is an active participant and enjoys consultative status at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the UN Sub-Committee of Experts (UNSCOE) on the Transport of Dangerous Goods. IVODGA actively comments on proposed regulations and is in frequent contact with the US Department of Transportation's Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) and the US Coast Guard.

IVODGA members are provided with a far reaching range of services and benefits from discounts on technical and educational publications and dangerous goods training programs that help reduce operating costs, to the opportunity to interact and share information about how to overcome regulatory and legislative hurdles that affect daily operating procedures. For publications on IMDG Code or 49 CFR, follow the links. IVODGA members are continually informed about regulatory changes in the transportation industry through their email regulatory update service and timely industry seminars, Hazardous Materials / Dangerous Goods Training and hazardous materials forums.
