The International Group of P&I Clubs and the shipping line members of the Cargo Incident Notification System (CINS) released a new set of guidelines for the carriage of Calcium Hypochlorite in containers on May 2016. The original guidelines have since been revised in light of new information concerning the carriage of calcium hypochlorite in a range of different circumstances.
Contracting governments may apply the SOLAS – Amendments to the IMDG Code (Amendment 38-16) in part or in whole, on a voluntary basis from 1st January 2017. Mandatory compliance will be required from 1st January 2018.
The safe carriage of potentially dangerous cargoes is the focus for the Sub-Committee on Carriage of Cargoes and Containers (CCC), which is meeting for its 3rd session at IMO Headquarters.
UK P&I Club Risk Assessor David Nichol discusses the carriage of dangerous goods and issues associated with mis-declaration. He says that according to latest figures, 27% of incidents in terms of detected causation are attributable to cargo being mis-declared, second only to poor packaging.
The International Group of P&I Clubs and the shipping line members of the Cargo Incident Notification System (CINS) have collaborated to produce a new set of guidelines for the carriage of Calcium Hypochlorite in containers.
The West of England P&I Club has issued an article to remind of the amendments to the IMDG Code which will become mandatory on 1 January 2016.
