The Law Library presents the complete text of the FR - Bulk Solid Hazardous Materials - Harmonization with the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes Code (Federal Register Publication) (US Coast Guard Regulation) (USCG) (2018 Edition).
Updated as of May 29, 2018
The Coast Guard is harmonizing its regulations with amendments to Chapter VI and Chapter VII of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, as amended, (SOLAS) that make the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC) Code mandatory. The amendments require that all vessels subject to SOLAS, and carrying bulk solid cargoes other than grain, comply with the IMSBC Code. The Coast Guard is amending its regulations governing the carriage of solid hazardous materials in bulk to allow use of the IMSBC Code as an equivalent form of compliance for all domestic and foreign vessels operating in U.S. navigable waters. The amended Coast Guard regulations also expand the list of solid hazardous materials authorized for bulk transportation by vessel and include special handling procedures based on the IMSBC Code and existing special permits. These changes reduce the need for the current special permits required for the carriage of certain solid hazardous materials in bulk.
