Webinar on SOLAS Container Weight Requirements

IUMI’s first online learning event took place on Tuesday, 21 June 2016. This webinar kicked off a series of online sessions on a variety of topical issues. 

Recent amendments to SOLAS regulation V1/2 for the verification of the weight of containers require a packed container’s gross mass to be certified prior to stowage on board a vessel. The new rules came into force on July 1, 2016. The shipper is responsible for providing the verified weight and ensuring it is communicated in the shipping documents to the ship’s master or representative, and the terminal representative, sufficiently in advance in order to be used in the ship stowage preparation plan. Many shipping and logistics companies won’t be ready for this new resolution and this is likely to affect the cargo insurance sector in the short term. Once the new regulation is fully implemented and practiced, it will contribute significantly to the safety of seafarers, ships and their cargoes.

Steffen Maelicke, Counsel at Dabelstein & Passehl, Hamburg, shared his insights into the requirements and implications for the insurance industry shortly before the new rules came into force.
