More recently, as marine pollution has become a serious concern, countries have taken further steps to regulate the carriage of marine pollutants, as described in Annex III of MARPOL. The International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code, which was first published in 1965, amplifies the requirements of both conventions and has become the standard guide to all aspects of handling dangerous goods and marine pollutants in sea transport. The IMDG Code as originally amended was recommended to governments as the basis for national regulations by which the requirements of SOLAS 1974 and MARPOL Annex III were effected, but the Code as amended by Amendments 32, 33, 34 and 35 is now mandatory.
