IMO Approves SOLAS Amendments for Container Weight Verification
by Azimuth Support Team on 12/22/15
The International Maritime Organization’s Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) has approved long-awaited changes to the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) convention that will require container weight verification as a condition for loading packed export containers aboard ships.The approved changes will enter into force in July 2016.
Misdeclared container weights have been a long-standing problem for the transportation industry and governments as they present safety hazards for ships, their crews, other cargo on board, workers in the port facilities handling containers, and on roads.
