Intercargo has worked with Lloyd’s Register and the UK P&I Club to produce a pocket guide on the IMSBC Code. The pocket guide aims to help all those responsible to manage the risks of carrying solid bulk cargoes and achieve compliance with SOLAS. It outlines the precautions that should be taken before accepting cargoes for shipment and the procedures that should be followed for safe loading and carriage, and details the primary hazards associated with the different types of solid bulk cargo.
