INTERTANKO gives a presentation at a CDI Inspector Seminar this week in Rotterdam

In his presentation, INTERTANKO’s Marine and Chemicals Director, Capt. Howard Snaith, gave an update on the MARPOL Annex II Revisions which are expected to come into force by 1 January 2007. This included the IMO Bulk Liquid Gases - Terms of Reference, an explanation of the need to re-categorise existing products and of the INTERTANKO position supported by industry favouring a 3-category system, decisions made at MEPC 49 (including the 3+1 category system), the work accomplished at ESPH 9 and cargoes for which evaluation by GESAMP/EHS is still outstanding.

In addition to the presentation an excellent question and answer session followed regarding inspections in general and the work of INTERTANKO in this field which proved to be mutually beneficial.
