The Sub-Committee on Carriage of Cargoes and Containers (CCC) deals with the carriage of packaged dangerous goods, solid bulk cargoes, bulk gas cargoes, and containers. The Sub-Committee keeps updated the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes Code (IMSBC Code) and the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code. It also keeps under review other Codes including the International Code of Safety for Ships using Gases or other Low-flashpoint Fuels (IGF Code) and the International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Liquefied Gases in Bulk (IGC Code).
The IMarEST is actively participating with the work of this Sub-Committee and is involved with the IMO work through our membership and our Special Interest Groups (SIGs).
This report provides a summary of the key discussions and outcomes of the 4th session of the CCC together with an overview of IMarEST’s engagement in the work of this Sub-Committee.
