WCL complies with the IMDG Code of the IMO

The IMDG Code (International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code) governs the transport regulations for dangerous goods in maritime traffic. The IMDG is an instrument of the IMO (International Maritime Organization). The IMGD Code serves as a supplement to SOLAS (provisions of the 1974 International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea). It is almost identical to the rules for labelling according to ADR/RID, which apply to road and rail. Dangerous goods classes and UN numbers are also used. In Germany, the IMDG Code is integrated into the GGVSee (Gefahrgutverordnung See, Maritime Dangerous Goods Ordinance). Packing groups, classes and UN number are to be indicated accordingly.
