Update to the IMSBC Code (Amendment 06-21)

Covering the latest carriage requirements for bulk cargoes, the IMO has adopted a new set of amendments to the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC) Code. These updates include a revised definition for Group A cargoes and new requirements addressing cargoes which may undergo dynamic separation during transit, as well as several new additions and deletions to the solid bulk cargoes list. Owners of both new and existing vessels should be mindful of these updates and shipowners and operators should make plans for updating their IMSBC Code certificates and approved cargo lists if necessary.
