The International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, SOLAS Convention , as amended, deals with various aspects of maritime safety and contains, in parts A and B of chapter VI and part A-1 of chapter VII, the mandatory provisions governing the carriage of solid bulk cargoes and the carriage of dangerous goods in solid form in bulk, respectively. Detailed fire protection arrangements for ships carrying solid bulk cargoes are incorporated into chapter II-2 of the SOLAS Convention by regulations 10 and For cargo ships of less than gross tonnage constructed on or after 1 September and before 1 February , it is recommended that Contracting Parties extend such application to these cargo ships as far as possible. The problems involved in the carriage of bulk cargoes were recognized by the delegates to the International Conference on Safety of Life at Sea, but at that time it was not possible to frame detailed requirements, except for the carriage of grain.

The International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, SOLAS Convention , as amended, deals with various aspects of maritime safety and contains, in chapter VI, the mandatory provisions governing the carriage of solid bulk cargoes. The primary aim of the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes Code IMSBC Code , which replaces the Code of Safe Practice for Solid Bulk Cargoes BC Code , is to facilitate the safe stowage and shipment of solid bulk cargoes by providing information on the dangers associated with the shipment of certain types of solid bulk cargoes and instructions on the procedures to be adopted when the shipment of solid bulk cargoes is contemplated.
The prime hazards associated with the shipment of solid bulk cargoes are those relating to structural damage due to improper cargo distribution, loss or reduction of stability during a voyage and chemical reactions of cargoes.
Therefore, the primary aim of the IMSBC Code is to facilitate the safe stowage and shipment of solid bulk cargoes by providing information on the dangers associated with the shipment of certain types of solid bulk cargoes and instructions on the procedures to be adopted when the shipment of solid bulk cargoes is contemplated. Observance of the Code harmonizes the practices and procedures to be followed and the appropriate precautions to be taken in the loading, trimming, carriage and discharge of solid bulk cargoes when transported by sea, ensuring compliance with the mandatory provisions of the SOLAS Convention.
Since then, the Code has been amended by resolutions MSC. The working languages are English, French and Spanish. Some content on this site is available in all official languages.
The majority is presented in the working languages.
IMSBC Code comes into force
Although coal is best known for its flammable and self-heating properties, certain coal cargoes may also be liable to liquefaction. Coal cargoes may therefore require the same TML and moisture certification as other Group A cargoes, such as concentrates, nickel ore and iron ore fines. The classification of coal has changed so that all coal is to be treated as both Group A and B, unless otherwise tested. This means that all coal cargoes are to be considered as both liable to liquefy and have a chemical hazard - unless they meet the new criteria as detailed in the IMSBC Code. There are two alternative ways in which shippers may demonstrate that a coal cargo is not Group A:. Drying ovens should have forced circulation or use an inert gas, unlike ovens used for the other TML test methods.
