SOLAS: Container Weighing Regulations

Changes to the SOLAS legislation now require that all containers have a verified weight certificate before being loaded on to a ship. Is your business compliant?

SOLAS is an international maritime safety treaty designed to ensure that ships comply with minimum safety standards in construction, equipment and operation. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has announced that this new container weighing legislation will come into force from July 1, 2016.
