Safety Of Life At Sea (SOLAS)

Shipping of containers made safe.

Standard Post with Image

Workflow

Current booking system will not change.
  • Box operators are responsible to provide VGM information prior to the loading terminal cut off.
  • Customers with exisiting EDI arrangements, may update VGM information via EDI.
  • If necessary, for customers without existing EDI arrangement, TransAtlantic Container can provide an excel template which includes fields for all required VGM details. Box Operator will have to fill up this template for each shipment and for all containers.
  • ELL / EDI information will be updated into the TransAtlantic Container system, from where Load lists will be generated for stowage planning / re-distribution to terminal & vessel in required electronic formats.
  • Export Units without VGM details will not be loaded

The Regulation:

Effective 1st July 2016, SOLAS Chapter VI, Regulation 2, paragraph 6, will be enforced, which states: A container packed with packages and cargo items should not be loaded onto a ship to which the SOLAS regulations apply unless the master or his representative and the terminal representative have obtained, in advance of vessel loading, the verified actual gross mass of the container.

TransAtlantic Container Conditions of Carriage will be amended to reflect this Statutory Requirement from 1st July 2016.

TransAtlantic Container Policy:

  • TransAtlantic Container as a SOC Common Carrier shall not be responsible for the accuracy / authenticity of a VGM certificate as declared by a shipper, but shall comply with "The Regulation" by ensuring that every container accepted for loading has a VGM certificate prior to finalizing the booking.
  • Only VGM Weights will be used for pre-load stowage plans. Therefore VGM confirmation will be required prior terminal cut off.
  • TransAtlantic Container shall not load any EXPORT containers without a VGM certificate after 1st July 2016 as this would be a contravention of SOLAS regulations. Transhipped containers will be accepted as per MSC.1/Circ.1548
  • Any associated charges due to VGM related issues (including, but not limited to, weighing / re-weighing / re-certification, shifting within the terminal and/or cancellation charges), shall be on box operator's account.

VGM Updates:

VGM Information required:
Container Number The container number mentioned on the VGM Certificate
VGM Weight / Qualifier This is the Weight mentioned in the VGM certificate from Shipper / Confirmation that the weight declared is VGM.
VGM Certificate - Authorized Person This is the Name of the Authorized person identified as the shipper’s representative, who is responsible for issuance of the certificate.
VGM Certificate Number Where a certificate number is referenced on the actual certificate.
VGM Certificate Issuing Party Name and address of the company which issued the VGM certificate.
VGM Issue Date Date of issue of VGM Certificate.
VGM Method Method 1: Total Gross Mass of the Container after packing
Method 2: Certified Weight of individual packages of cargo added to Container Tare Weight.

** Incase required by different National Regulations**
