CTOAG WEEKLY NEWS ITEM - STRIPPING QUESTIONNAIRE

In view of the proposed revisions to MARPOL Annex II and the re-evaluation of the GESAMP hazard profiles, it will be of great assistance to INTERTANKO to be able to determine the stripping capability of its members' chemical tankers .

Accordingly, INTERTANKO's Chemical Tanker Advisory Group (CTOAG) decided at its last meeting that statistics should be gathered on existing vessel stripping requirements and circulated to the CTOAG for its guidance. To this end INTERTANKO has compiled a questionnaire, which can be accessed at http://www.intertanko.com/pdf/weeklynews/ctoag.pdf

We will be sending this form directly to our chemical tanker owning members, and also aim to co-ordinate this project with the Chemical Carriers Association and the Norwegian Ship Owners Association.

The completed forms should be either faxed to INTERTANKO London office at + 44 (0) 20 7626 7078 or sent directly by e-mail to adele.garnett@intertanko.com
