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.
