The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (the 9/11 Commission), has recognized NFPA 1600: Standard on Disaster/Emergency Management and Business Continuity Programs as our National Preparedness Standard®. Widely used by public, not-for-profit, nongovernmental, and private entities on a local, regional, national, international and global basis, NFPA 1600 has been adopted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a voluntary consensus standard for emergency preparedness. Now you can access NFPA 1600 requirements in the palm of your hand!
Through this application NFPA 1600 is fully searchable and is equipped with active links as well as phone numbers for NFPA® and other agencies involved with emergency management programs, risk mitigation, and response. The 2010 edition includes major revisions to the listings of resources identified in the annexes.
The app contains the complete revision and reorganization of the 2010 NFPA 1600, including major changes to the technical requirements and definitions. It establishes a common set of criteria for all disaster/emergency management and business continuity programs, and provides the fundamental criteria to develop, implement, assess and maintain these programs for prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response, continuity and recovery. The chapter on Program Elements is now four separate chapters -- Planning...Implementation...Testing and Exercises...and Program Improvement.
The 2007 and 2010 editions of NFPA 1600 have been designated by DHS, to be used by accredited 3rd parties, to evaluate and certify compliance of entities under its Private Sector Preparedness (PS Prep) Program.

Powerful search capabilities will help you quickly find information by matching just part of the UN/NA number or material name. Cargo Decoder also supports Voice Search to make searches even faster.
Protective distance information,toxic inhalation hazards, and ERG2012 reference pages are just a touch away for emergency responders and HazMat personnel. A simple swipe quickly moves you to the information you need.
Cargo Decoder is my way to give back to the first responders who are always there for us. Cargo Decoder for Android will always be free and will never contain ads. Cargo Decoder uses no network bandwidth so information will always be available even if the cell network is not.
Cargo Decoder runs on just about every device running Android version 2.2 and later.
Cargo Decoder now supports sharing of material details. Select a material and touch the Share icon. Create a notebook of materials found using Evernote (Evernote can add GPS information too). Share information to others via email or text messaging. Configure the information about the material you want to share in Settings. Important: Sharing with Facebook does not work even though Facebook adds itself to the sharing list. Facebook says the behavior is "by design"(https://developers.facebook.com/bugs/332619626816423)
