Amended Guidelines for the carriage of Calcium Hypochlorite
The International Group and CINS have issued revised joint industry guidance on the carriage of Calcium Hypochlorite by sea (first publication in May 2016) that now takes account of the package limit of 100 lb drums under US measurement as well as the previously stated package limit of 45kg net weight.
Calcium hypochlorite or calcium hypochlorite mixtures shall be transported in compliance with the requirements set out in the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code)1. However, the practices set out below include selected provisions from the IMDG Code plus additional precautions to be consistent with the science basis established in 1999 by consulting scientists J H Burgoyne and Partners to minimise the risk2.
The new version 2.0 of the Guidelines replaces the version published in May 2016.
