6th BIMCO report on Amendments to the IMSBC Code entering into force – re-assignment of bulk cargo shipping names for generic dangerous goods
All solid bulk cargoes under the IMSBC Code must be identified in the transport documentation by their BCSN ( reference: section 126.96.36.199 of the IMSBC Code).
However, due to Amendment 05-19, the assignment of dangerous goods as defined in the International Maritime Dangerous Goods ( IMDG) Code, has undergone a change as far as the allocation of a BCSN for generic dangerous goods carried in solid bulk form under the IMSBC Code is concerned.
To read the full BIMCO’s 6th report on the IMSBC Code Amendments as well as an understanding of how BCSN is allocated to a solid bulk cargo, please go to our BIMCO Solid Bulk Cargo Section/Assignment of BCSN.
