New SOLAS Requirements for the Verified Gross Mass of Containers

Date: 15/06/2016

Amendments have been made to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS). These amendments will come into force on 1st July 2016 and have as their objective the gross mass verification of packed containers prior to stowage on board a ship by expanding on how such gross mass of cargo carried in units is to be verified.

An explanation of the regulations by Transport Malta’s relevant port notice can be found on the following link: http://www.transport.gov.mt/admin/uploads/media-library/files/DOC018.pdf
