Interpretation of stowage and segregation requirements for brown coal briuettes and coal related to "Hot Areas"in the IMSBC Code

  dd-mm-yyyy = Entry into force


  1. The Maritime Safety Committee, at its eighty-seventh session (12 to 21 May 2010), noting that the provisions of the IMSBC Code may be applied from 1 January 2009 on a voluntary basis and are envisaged to become mandatory under the SOLAS Convention on 1 January 2011, recognized the need for clarification of the following stowage and segregation requirements:

    1. "This cargo shall not be stowed adjacent to hot areas." in paragraph 5 in the section for "STOWAGE & SEGREGATION" in the appendix to the individual schedule for BROWN COAL BRIQUETTES; and

    2. "The master shall ensure that this cargo is not stowed adjacent to hot areas." in paragraph 4 in the section for "Segregation and stowage requirements" in the appendix to the individual schedule for COAL.

  2. The Committee agreed that the words "adjacent to hot areas" in these provisions should be interpreted as "boundary areas of the cargo hold in contact with the cargo, having a temperature consistently greater than 55°C during carriage of the cargo, such as can sometimes be experienced when heated fuel oil service tanks and fuel oil settling tanks have a common boundary with the cargo hold".

  3. The Committee recommends that, in applying the aforementioned interpretation, the following is taken into account:

      "Heated fuel oil tanks adjacent to cargo spaces carrying these cargoes should not normally be considered as "hot areas" when the fuel oil temperature is controlled at less than 55°C; this temperature is not exceeded for periods greater than 12 hours in any 24-hour period; and the maximum temperature of the fuel oil reached does not exceed 65°C."

    • Member Governments are invited to use the aforementioned interpretation as guidance when applying the provisions of the IMSBC Code and to bring it to the attention of all parties concerned.
