Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Dear partners and friends!

From the bottom of our hearts we wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

IDGCA celebrates 15th anniversary in 2016. Despite the relatively young age IDGCA managed to do a lot of good deeds and to establish itself as independent and competent organization. During 15 years we have felt the joy of victory and the bitterness of betrayal, help of friends and envy of useless people. But after going through the fire and water we felt ourselves even stronger and assured of tomorrow. Support of fair competition, a professional approach to any problem, independent judgment, based on knowledge of the law and the right - that's the tool that we will use in the future.

We wish you happiness, health and success. See you again in the New 2016.


IDGCA President Gennady Moshkov

IDGCA General Director Mikhail Ognev

Court hold that kerosene UN № 1223 is not a dangerous good11.12.2015

Such decision was made by the court because of the fact that requirements of International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code) do not apply to the transportation of dangerous goods in tankers.

Rostransnadzor was a plaintiff with regard to this case and the shipping company which was transporting kerosene in tanker was defendant. Rostransnadzor has set a claim to ship-owner regarding the failure to comply with licensing requirements related to the transport of kerosene in sea tanker. However ship-owner has put in issue at first instance of court, stating that kerosene with UN № 1223 is not a dangerous good in case of its transportation in sea tanker. Specialists which were involved to this issues considered that such decision is at least strange as far as good with UN numbers is a dangerous good independently of the way it is transporting – sea or river. According to the information of Rostransnadzor this court decision will be disputed in the second instance. Experts of "IDGCA" have prepared an opinion on this issue.
