Transporting dangerous goods by sea

International regulations apply to the transport of packaged dangerous goods by sea. There are also requirements for loading and unloading packaged dangerous goods. In the Netherlands, the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate (ILT) checks whether carriers comply with the rules.

The ILT cooperates with: Douane (Dutch Customs), Municipal port authorities, Politie, Landelijke eenheid (The Netherlands Police, Central Unit), Rijkswaterstaat (Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management) and Nederlandse arbeidsinspectie (Netherlands Labour Authority).
