According to these requirements, the certification organization should not be training. It must also be competent and independent of any individuals or legal entities who hires advisers. The International Dangerous Goods and Containers Association («IDGCA») fully complies with these requirements, the competence of Association was confirmed by the granting of consultative status in 2004 by the UN ECOSOC Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods and the Globally Harmonized System of Hazard Classification and Labelling of Chemical Products.
