Is it true that dangerous goods training is now mandatory not just for air freight shipments but also for goods moved by sea freight?

Yes, it appears to be the case that from 1/1/2010 training for sea freight is mandatory. Although there is nothing in the code which implies people should sit a question paper, competence needs to be confirmed. The information was in Amendment 34-08 sent out by the IMDG. It implies that training is mandatory and that it must be recorded in case the "competent authority" audits a company's training records.
