Ship Type: Chemical tankers

Revision of the IBC Code Chapters 17, 18 and 21 – Assigning carriage requirements for products

The criteria for assigning carriage requirements to chemicals (Chapter 21) with regards to safety hazards were reviewed and reassessed. The implication of those amendments may result in a change of ship type, tank type and changes to carriage requirements, for certain products. Some products which are currently categorized as non-toxic cargoes, become categorized as toxic cargoes due to this revision. New certificates and cargo lists complying with these amendments are to be produced on board from entry into force of the amendments. The lists of requirements for specific cargoes (Chapters 17 and 18) were amended accordingly. Changes to the BCH Code were made as well.
