OOCL关于集装箱重量验证(VGM)

发布时间:2016-06-23

Verified Gross Mass (VGM) requirements under the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention

To improve safety in the supply chain, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has made amendments to the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) convention indicating that all shippers must comply with mandatory container weight verification requirements, or Verified Gross Mass (VGM), effective July 1, 2016. 

Currently the industry is in ongoing discussions with many regulatory authorities and stakeholders to ascertain the implementation details and policies on such requirements as well as to ensure that process and system readiness for compliance is in order before the effective date.
 

A number of regulatory authorities have already published their guidelines and regulations to help the industry comply with the new VGM rules while some countries such as China have announced that they are in the final stages of policy development.

The fundamental elements 

Principle

What? 

Method No. 1 - Weighing
Weighing the packed container using calibrated and certified weighing equipment 

Method No. 2 – Calculating
The sum of the single masses = Mass of cargo items + all packages (pallets, dunnage, securing material packed in the container) + container tare weight as certified and approved by the national authorized body 
Note: 
1. It is inappropriate and impractical to adopt Method No. 2 for Scrap metal, unbagged grain and other cargo in bulk. 
2. The container tare weight can be obtained by online enquiry through OOCL.com or from the print as indicated on the container itself.
