Dear Valued Customers,
The International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) Maritime Safety Committee has approved and adopted changes to the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) convention regarding a mandatory container weight verification requirement on shippers. This is an effort the committee has been advocating for many years. The Dangerous Goods, Solid Cargo and Containers (DSC) sub-committee approved changes to the SOLAS convention that will require verification of container weights before loaded containers may be placed aboard ships. This requirement makes container weight verification a condition for vessel loading and will become legally binding on July 1, 2016.
