The present Standard shall be considered the basic source reference of proper planning, safe handling and stowage, as well as securing and lashing of project cargoes. It is applicable to all vessels and forms a part of Rickmers-Linie QMS. Its declared purpose and spirit is to get the ship owners, stevedores and, in fact, any other involved parties informed about the safe cargo securing and handling techniques.
All technical details of this Standard fully comply with the IMO Res. A.714(17), as amended. The document, in particular, is intended to provide detailed info on the lifting, bedding, securing and lashing of transported cargo and also deals with the equipment utilized; the maintenance related issues have also been addressed. The cargo information that must be supplied by the shippers as per SOLAS Chapter IV reg. 2, has also been described in this standard, together with the required configuration of bedding areas, securing points and lifting provisions.
These aspects are to correspond with the tensile strength of the securing gear on board of the vessel as well as the deck layout. In case the requirements stated in this Standard cannot be met, an alternative solution providing the equivalent safety level is to be applied.
