0. INTRODUCTION

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. SCOPE


1.1. Functional Definition

The International Forwarding and Transport Dangerous Cargo List Message is a message:

  • from the party acting on behalf of the carrier for the gathering of the dangerous goods information of the cargo in a certain port or place of call or loading,
  • to the party acting on behalf of the carrier in the next port or place of call or discharge,

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 applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.


1.3. Principles

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:

  • One message relates to one conveyance/voyage of a means of transport.
  • One message is to be suitable to give information on dangerous goods on board.
  • One message is to be based on the local legal information requirements regarding the notification of dangerous goods to the (port) authority.
  • One message may contain several consignments.
  • A consignment may contain several goods items/dangerous goods classes.
  • Each goods item can contain only one dangerous goods class. A goods item reflects the operational description of the goods.
  • A dangerous goods class may be transported in one or more equipment, and a single equipment may contain one or more dangerous goods classes.
  • The message has to cater for the provision of sending updates (change, deletion or cancellation).
