Amendments to IBC Code
A comprehensive set of revisions for the carriage requirements of products in Chapter 17 of the IBC Code was adopted, primarily as a consequence of the revised Chapter 21 on the criteria for assigning carriage requirements for products subject to the IBC Code. Additionally, specific products are now required to undergo prewash procedures under MARPOL Annex II. Chapter 15 was revised to require hydrogen sulphide detection equipment shall be provided on board ships carrying bulk liquids prone to formation. Similar amendments were approved for the BCH Code.
