Further to the guidelines issued on 10 May 2016 jointly by the International Group of P&I Clubs (IG Clubs) and the shipping line members of the Cargo Incident Notification System (CINS), an update has been issued to take account of the US trade export of CH in 100lb drums, as opposed to 45kg drums.
Whilst this is a relatively minor amendment for exports of Calcium Hypochlorite from the US, the Guidelines and IG FAQs hopefully continue to provide a clear and logical step by step guidance for the carriage of this cargo. The Guidelines are published on the IG and CINS websites and are attached again to this circular for ease of reference.
All Clubs have issued a similar circular.
