Confirmation of compliance of packaging for dangerous cargoes

The Russian Maritime Register of Shipping provides the services to confirm the compliance of packagings for dangerous goods (including large and special packagings, intermediate bulk containers (IBC)) with the requirements of the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code IMDG Code and the provisions of the Model Regulations of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods.

According to IMDG Code, RS is appointed by the national competent inspector agency for approval, acceptance and all subsequent actions related to IBC and packagings submitted for registration in the Russian Federation.

To start providing the services, the Customer shall apply to the RS with a request to confirm the compliance of packagings for dangerous goods.

The Customer shall inform the Register of all production sites where the packaging is manufactured that is declared for the confirmation of the type compliance.

If the Customer is not a manufacturer of packagings for dangerous goods, then, when confirming the compliance of the serial producted packagings, the Customer shall be authorized by the manufacturer (which shall be documented) to:

  • submit technical documentation for RS review and approval or to use RS-approved technical documentation;
  • organize the relevant surveys including the survey of production within the required scope;
  • organize the testing of packagings within the required scope.

The Register uses two procedures for compliance confirmation:

  • confirmation of compliance of serial producted packagings;
  • confirmation of compliance of packaging lot.

The procedure for confirmation of compliance of serial producted packagings is used when confirming the compliance of packagings that are serial producted under the technical supervision by the Register.

The procedure of confirmation of compliance of packaging lot is used:

  • when confirming the compliance of the packaging lot that, at the time of confirmation of compliance, was already manufactured without technical supervision by the Register;
  • when confirming the compliance of packagings manufactured individually under the technical supervision by the Register;
  • when confirming the compliance of packagings that, according to IMDG Code, require that the Register shall certify each piece of packagings.
