IMDG Code Amdt 38-16 error reported, 2 May 2017

Chapter 5.3.2.0.2 the following error has been noticed and reported.

The 37-14 wording is:
"5.3.2.0.2 The Proper Shipping Name for the goods shall be displayed in characters not less than 65 mm high. This may be reduced to 12 mm for portable tank containers with a capacity of less than 3,000 L. The Proper Shipping Name shall be of contrasting colour with the background. "

The intended 38-16 wording was:
"5.3.2.0.2 The Proper Shipping Name for the goods shall be displayed in characters not less than 65 mm high. This may be reduced to 12 mm for portable tank containers with a capacity of not more than 3,000 L. The Proper Shipping Name shall be of contrasting colour with the background."

The books make the last para ".... in characters not more than 65 mm high...... capacity of less than 3,000 L." It changes the meaning somewhat.

We expect this will be corrected in the next Errata.
