Review of IIMA Proposal for a DRI ‘D’ Schedule

Members will recall that the International Iron Metallics Association (IIMA) has been contracted by Venezuelan interests  to present a case for r the carriage of DRI Fines under ventilation, rather than under an inert atmosphere as currently required by the IMSBC Code.  The proposal is to incorporate to the IMSBC Code a new schedule entitled ‘DRI D’.

This proposal has raised interest and potential concern due to the inherent dangers that have been associated with DRI cargoes; consequently it was determined that peer review of this proposal would be beneficial and the IG has led a joint industry co-operation and Alan Mitcheson of Burgoynes was engaged to undertake a review of the IIMA proposal.  INTERCARGO has contributed financially to facilitate this review.
