The Memorandum of Understanding for the Transport of Dangerous Goods on Ro-Ro Ships in the Baltic Sea [Baltic MoU] is a multilateral agreement on the transport of dangerous goods in packaged form between Denmark, Germany, Poland, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Sweden that has existed for more than 20 years. The objective with the Baltic MoU is to create an agreement that efficiently combine the rules to enable transport of dangerous goods on certain short routes in the Baltic Sea while maintaining safety but eliminating the need to relabel or reload goods between modes of transport.

The purpose of the training is to give the participant a good awareness of the structure and content of the Baltic MoU. The participant should have a good awareness over the provisions in the IMDG Code like placarding and marking of CTUs, documentation, stowage and segregation provisions and consigning provisions for ro-ro vessels. The training also includes a comparison with the road and rail regulations ADR and RID.

The student will get knowledge about the content of the Baltic MoU. The student will also be familiar with concerned provisions in the ADR.
