The marine pollutant label is a sub-risk label only and is used with other primary classes of labels.

Marine pollutants or environmentally hazardous substances are materials that can pose a risk to aquatic ecosystems. Marine pollutant is a term used by the IMDG code (International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code). The term "environmentally hazardous substances" is used by other dangerous goods regulations.

A shipping company who offers a hazardous material for transport must determine the hazard class of the material including:

  • Environmentally hazardous substances (aquatic environment);
  • Applicability;
  • Assign a proper shipping name that best describes it and mark the material according to dangerous goods regulations.

Marking and labelling

Every combination packaging containing marine pollutant shall be marked with correct technical name and marine pollutant mark.

  • Symbol (fish and tree): black on white or suitable contrasting background
  • Dimensions of at least 100mm × 100mm

Exceptions for Environmentally Hazardous Substances Mark

  • Not required for a package that contains less than, or equal to, 5L or 5kg per inner or single package.
  • Transport units for freight containers which contain substances classified as environmentally hazardous substances are not exempt from marking;
  • IATA only requires "fish and tree" mark for the UN-numbers UN3077 and UN3082, fish & tree mark is not required for UN 1993. Even though IATA does not require the mark, the marine pollutant mark is accepted by IATA for air transport (IATA simply ignores the mark when it handles a package).


If the cargo is a marine pollutant the dangerous goods declaration must indicate this with the words “MARINE POLLUTANT”. The proper shipping name should be accompanied with the technical name if the cargo is under a generic or N.O.S entry.

For example:

  • “UN 1993, FLAMMABLE LIQUID, N.O.S. (propyl acetate, di-nbutyltin-di-2-ethylhexanoate), class 3 PG III (50 °C c.c.) MARINE POLLUTANT”
  • “UN 1263, PAINT (triethylbenzene), class 3 PG III (27 °C c.c.) MARINE POLLUTANT”
