Members are advised that the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has issued a new marine notice (2018/3), reminding vessel owners, operators and masters of the need to stow and secure cargo containers in accordance with approved arrangements.
All cargo, whether carried on or under deck, should be stowed and secured in accordance with the vessels’ Cargo Securing Manuals, as approved under the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention.
AMSA further forewarns that if during a Port State Control (PSC) inspection on a vessel evidence of irregularities with the stowage and securing of the containers on board is found, they will take the necessary steps to bring that ship into compliance.
