The IMO introduced and adopted numerous safety measures that were designed in order to improve the bulk carrier safety, and that was after so many incidents had taken place, some of which involving total loss of the ships and even human lives. The subject measures included the important requirements intended to improve the overall strength as well as the technical maintenance of the bulk carriers, provided necessary guidance for inspecting these vessels during their stay at terminals, etc.
In addition to that, they covered the entire process of loading and discharging of the bulk cargo. All of the requirements have been reflected in the present Code which is considered to be of utmost importance for the safety of bulk carrier operation, due to the comprehensive coverage of all aspects. The publication will give a pragmatic and true framework for the risk management; note that the grain cargo is not covered.
The topics addressed include the transfer of the cargoes, handling the ballast, ship-shore interaction procedures and many others. The content was developed based on the valuable contributions provided by the ship owners, terminal operators and several other parties involved.
