188.8.131.52 NEGLIGENT DECLARATION OF DANGEROUS CARGO
Although the IMDG Code is mandatory, there is still considerable lack of knowledge and training, resulting into dangerous cargo being improperly declared. The chemical reaction of two dangerous cargoes can have catastrophic results.
If there is any discrepancy between the cargo documents and the cargo on the
trailers, a closer inspection should be made, followed by a possible rejection
of incorrectly declared cargo.
