Dangerous cargo list message
This specification provides the definition of the Dangerous cargo list message (IFTIAG) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.
1.1. Functional Definition
The International Forwarding and Transport Dangerous Cargo List Message is a message:
conveying the information relating to one conveyance or voyage of a means of transport such as a vessel, train, truck or barge, on the dangerous goods being carried on board - irrespective of the operations that will take place in the next port of call. This message provides the basic information by which the message recipient can notify to the local authorities about the loading, unloading and transit-related operations, by means of the International forwarding and transport dangerous goods notification message (IFTDGN).
1.2. Field of Application
The Dangerous cargo list message may be used for both national and international trade. It is based on universal commercial practice and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.
The Dangerous Cargo List corresponds to IMO FAL Form 7 (in preparation), which always has to be on board of the vessel.
An agent in the following port of call uses the Dangerous Cargo List to draw up the IFTDGN message (Dangerous Goods Notification) to the responsible authorities in order to report the goods discharged, loaded or in transit.
A shipping agent in a port of loading sends the Dangerous Cargo List message to all the agents of the same shipping line in the subsequent ports of call. In turn, a shipping agent in the following port of call makes up an additional Dangerous Cargo List for the dangerous goods loaded in that port, to be communicated to the agents in the ports called thereafter.
More than one Dangerous Cargo List can exist for one vessel in case of a consortium.
Sometimes the Dangerous Cargo list is sent from agent to agent via the carrier (shipowner).
The following guidelines, rules and functionality apply to the message:
See UNTDID, Part 4, Chapter 2.6 UN/ECE UNSM - General Introduction, Section 1.
3. TERMS AND DEFINITIONS
See UNTDID, Part 4, Chapter 2.6 UN/ECE UNSM - General Introduction, Section 2.
