Intercargo held its Annual General Meeting re-iterated its commitment to a safe and environmentally-friendly dry cargo shipping industry and its support for an industry governed by free and fair competition. Intercargo focused on ‘Safe Carriage of Cargoes’ and ‘Investigation of Casualties by Flag Administrations’.
Following the investigation report of the 2012 built supramax bulk carrier M/V CHESHIRE which was issued by the Isle of Man Ship Registry, INTERCARGO urges IMO to reconsider how Ammonium Nitrate Based Fertilizer should be designated in the IMSBC Code. Currently, the Ammonium Nitrate Based Fertilizer is listed as a group C cargo, however, the accident showed that this cargo, or at least some of the ammonium nitrate based fertilizers shipped as this cargo, should treated differently under the IMSBC Code.
