RIGHTSHIP SEEKS INDUSTRY INPUT TO DEVELOP AN ISGOTT EQUIVALENT FOR THE DRY BULK SECTOR

To raise standards in the marine solid bulk cargo sector, there needs to be consensus and articulation of best practice. The International Safety Guide for Oil Tankers and Terminals (ISGOTT) is an industry-accepted guide for the safe carriage and handling of crude oil and petroleum products on tankers and at terminals.

ISGOTT was first published in 1978 and combined the International Chamber of Shipping’s ‘Tanker Safety Guide (Petroleum)’ and the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) publication ‘International Oil Tanker and Terminal Safety Guide’. Currently in its 5th Edition (2006), ISGOTT is reviewed by these organisations together with the International Association of Ports and Harbours (IAPH), ensuring that it continues to reflect current best practice and legislation.

There is currently no ISGOTT equivalent in the solid bulk cargo sector. RightShip believes that facilitating, coordinating and contributing to the development of such a guide will have a direct and positive influence on safety. The proposed International Safety Guide for Bulk Carriers and Terminals (ISGBCT) will make recommendations for ship and terminal personnel on the safe carriage and handling of solid bulk cargoes on bulk carriers and in terminals.

 

The purpose of the Guide therefore will be to provide operational advice to assist personnel directly involved in bulk carrier and terminal operations. As with ISGOTT, it will not be intended to provide a definitive description of how these operations are conducted. The Guide will however provide guidance on key aspects of these operations and how they may be managed.

RightShip and The Nautical Institute are now partnering with a number of industry peak bodies in the preparation and peer review of the proposed Guide. We would welcome your input! If you would like more information on the project, please contact Paul MacGillivary, our project lead, at:
