Adherence to international codes relating to solid bulk cargoes and dangerous cargoes is vitally important. Breaches can result in legal proceedings, financial penalties, reputational damage and more.
To avoid breaching these codes, speak to Brookes Bell. Our team of scientists and cargo specialists is able to provide advice specifically related to loss prevention and compliance with the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC) and the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) codes.
Brookes Bell can provide advice on a range of commodities in relation to the IMDG code for the carriage of packaged goods and the IMSBC code for bulk commodities, for example:
- Liquefaction/Group A (iron ore fines, concentrates, nickel ore)
- Seed cake
- Direct reduced iron (DRI)
- New/unlisted cargoes
When it comes to dangerous goods, Brookes Bell is able to help you implement the correct categorisations and declarations that are required.
We can also assist with the UN standard tests which define the hazard classes.
