IMSBC Code Changes: HRL Technology
Are you ready for the revised IMSBC Code regulations, coming in January?
Companies transporting packaged goods via road, rail, or sea are required to test their goods against a number of different codes, ensuring their safe transport. One such code, the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC) Code supports the safe stowage and shipment of solid bulk cargoes by providing information on the associated dangers.
This code is reviewed on a frequent basis and in June last year, the IMO's Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) adopted a series of amendments under Resolution MSC.393 (95) which relate to the IMSBC Code, including specific changes to Section 9 of the Code Material Hazardous only in Bulk (MHB).
As a result of the changes under Resolution MSC.393(95), incorporating amendment 03-15, the changes were applied from the 1st of January this year on a voluntary basis, anticipating their official entry into force on the 1st of January, 2017.
With the 1st of January drawing ever closer, now is the time to ask yourself the question, "Will our organisation comply with the changes to section 9 of the material hazardous code for MHB in a manner which has been properly recorded, assessed, and justified?" If not, it's time to take action.
