Product Overview

Amendment 07-23 of the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC Code 2023 Edition KL260E) Code may be applied from on 1 January 2024 on a voluntary basis, anticipating its envisaged official entry into force on 1 December 2025 when it will be mandatory for all vessels that load solid bulk cargoes. The IMSBC Code amendments happen every two years to reflect the changes in the nature and variety of solid bulk cargoes presented for shipment.

This publication also presents additional information that supplements the IMSBC Code, such as the Code of Practice for the Safe Loading and Unloading of Bulk Carriers (BLU Code), BLU Manual and recommendations on the safe use of pesticides in ships applicable to the fumigation of cargo holds.  The IMSBC Code and supplement is commended to Administrations, shipowners, shippers and masters and all others concerned with the standards to be applied in the safe stowage and shipment of solid bulk cargoes, excluding grain.
