Is your company ready for SOLAS?

Is your company ready for SOLAS?

 

Effective 1st July 2016, new rules and regulations concerning the declared weight (VGM) of all full load container exports will be applied.

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has adopted new requirement under the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention that require shippers to provide a verified weight for every packed container as a condition for vessel loading.

We suggest that if you are an exporter, you ensure that your company and staff are fully aware of the upcoming policy.

For further information or details speak to your local Anglia office
