Baltic region container logistics met Riga to discuss on SOLAS container weighting
IMO Sub-Committee on Carriage of Cargoes and Containers (CCC) Circular CCC.1/Circ.2 on 'Carriage of bauxite that may liquefy' now issued.
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has amended the Safety of Life at Sea
Convention (SOLAS) to require, as a condition for loading a packed container onto a ship for
export, that the container has a verified weight.
The shipper is responsible for the verification of the packed container’s weight.
This requirement will become legally effective on July 1, 2016. After that date, it would be a violation of SOLAS to load a packed container onto a vessel if the vessel operator and marine terminal operator do not have a verified container weight.
