ICHCA to host seminar on new Code

September 16 - ICHCA international, the NGO association for the global cargo handling industry, will be hosting a practical seminar, "Understanding the new IMO/ILO/UNECE Code of Practice for Packing of Cargo Transport Units (CTUs)", in London on October 2

Held aboard HQS Wellington on the River Thames, the one-day event will focus on the new Code's terms, their potential impact and how they will be enforced globally.


Developed jointly by the International Maritime Organisation, International Labour Organisation and United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, the new Code of Practice will be far more comprehensive than the original 1997 packing guidelines, providing parties along the supply chain with information about their responsibilities, including details of how to pack and secure packages and cargo items.


The seminar will include talks by an expert panel of speakers and professionals from across the cargo chain, including: Bill Brassington, owner of ETS Consulting and consultant for editing the new Code; Chris Welsh, general secretary of the Global Shippers Forum; Don Armour, policy advisor at the Freight Transport Agency; and Keith Bradley, hazardous cargoes advisor at the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.


Brainstorming workgroups will also address key questions around disseminating the Code and training and educating packers.
