description {

The Code of Safe Practice for Cargo Stowage and Securing was adopted by the Assembly of IMO at its seventeenth regular session (November 1991) by resolution A.714(17). The Assembly recommended that Governments implement the Code at the earliest possible opportunity and requested the MSC to keep it under review and amend it as necessary. This has been done.

The first major changes to the Code were the amendments to MSC/Circ.664, adopted in December 1994, and MSC/Circ.691, adopted in May 1995, which were published as the 1994/1995 Amendments to the Code of Safe Practice for Cargo Stowage and Securing, introducing annex 13, which has been incorporated into this consolidated edition.

The present edition also includes amendments to annex 12, on safe stowage and securing of unit loads, issued as MSC/Circ.740 in June 1996, and amendments adopted by the MSC in May 2002, issued as MSC/Circ.1026, which saw significant changes in the contents of annex 13. Circular 1026 also includes an extension on the scope of application recommending all lashing assemblies to be fixed to strong or fixed points, a new table on friction coefficients and new texts on an advanced calculation method and an alternative method on balance of forces.

The book contains, as appendices, various texts which have been issued by the Organization and are considered relevant to cargo stowage and securing.

The International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code relates to the safe carriage of dangerous goods by sea, but does not include all details of procedures for packing of dangerous goods or actions to take in the event of an emergency or accident involving personnel who handle goods at sea. These aspects are covered by the publications that are associated with the IMDG Code, which are included in this Supplement.

Within a continuing process of revision of publications that are relevant to the IMDG Code, The EmS Guide: Emergency Response Procedures for Ships Carrying Dangerous Goods was further amended at the eighty-seventh session of MSC in May 2010, and the details are described in MSC.1/Circ.1360. Also at the eighty-seventh session of MSC, Revised Recommendations on the safe use of pesticides in ships and Revised Recommendations on the safe use of pesticides in ships applicable to the fumigation of cargo transport units were approved.

The Supplement also includes texts of the Medical First Aid Guide, descriptions of the reporting procedures for incidents involving dangerous goods, harmful substances and/or marine pollutants, the IMO/ILO/UNECE Guidelines for packing of cargo transport units, the International Code for the Safe Carriage of Packaged Irradiated Nuclear Fuel, Plutonium and High-Level Radioactive Wastes on board Ships and other appropriate Assembly resolutions, resolutions and circulars of the Maritime Safety Committee and circulars of the Facilitation Committee and of the Sub-Committee on Dangerous Goods, Solid Cargoes and Containers.

Note: The IMO/ILO/UNECE Guidelines for packing of cargo transport units are currently under review and have not yet been updated to reflect, where necessary, recent changes in the IMDG Code. Users of the Guidelines should refer to chapters 5.2 and 5.3 of the IMDG Code for the correct labels, placards, marks and signs.

This User Guide has been developed to consolidate existing IMO maritime security-related material into an easily read companion guide to SOLAS chapter XI-2 and the ISPS Code in order to assist States in promoting maritime security through development of the requisite legal framework, associated administrative practices, procedures and the necessary material, technical and human resources.

It is intended both to assist SOLAS Contracting Governments in the implementation, verification, compliance with, and enforcement of, the provisions of SOLAS chapter XI-2 and the ISPS Code. It should also serve as an aid and reference for those engaged in delivering capacity-building activities in the field of maritime security.
