A national awareness workshop on the implementation of the international maritime solid bulk cargoes (IMSBC) code was co-organised by IMO in Malaysia on 25-28 April, with special reference to cargoes that may liquefy – which can be a serious problem.

In addition to local experts, experts from Australia, INTERCARGO, P&I Clubs and Bureau Veritas, among others, took part in the workshop.

The workshop, with special focus on cargoes that may liquefy (Bauxite), provided an overview of the Malaysian experience with bauxite shipments from local ports. Action taken by Malaysia’s Maritime Administration to improve both crew and cargo safety was presented, with positive and constructive feedback provided on national legislation in place to deal with carrying bauxite by sea. Participants also witnessed field sampling and laboratory testing practices.

As a key supporting organisation, INTERCARGO (Mr David Tongue) participated and gave a detailed presentation on bulk cargo related incidents and possible causes. The presentation can be downloaded here.
