New cargo guide

New cargo guide

When bulk cargoes shift, liquefy, catch fire or explode due to poor loading procedures, the consequences can be critical – ships could capsize, lose stability or sustain severe structural damage. “Carrying solid bulk cargoes safely: Guidance for crews on the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC) Code” is an updated version of a 2013-published guide for ships’ officers and agents, produced jointly by Lloyd’s Register, UK P&I Club, and Intercargo. It outlines the precautions needed before accepting solid bulk cargoes for shipment and sets out procedures for safe loading and carriage and details the primary hazards associated with different types of cargoes. The guide includes a quick reference checklist and flowchart summarising the steps to be followed.
