16 Carriage & Transfer of Cargoes (including Dangerous Goods)


16.1 Objective


The carriage and transfer of cargoes under MASS operations should be conducted in an acceptable safe manner to maintain all practical equivalence to the prescribed regulations for conventional shipping. This Chapter of the CoP offers guidance to MASS Owners and Operators in the interpretation of their ‘Duty of Care’ to be considered in conjunction with the MASS Definitions, Operations and Certification within this Document.


16.2 Scope


16.2.1 The carriage and transfer of cargoes (including dangerous goods) by sea is controlled in order to prevent injury to persons or damage to ships and their cargoes and to prevent pollution of the marine environment under normal operating conditions. Dangerous goods are cargoes classified in the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code which is given force of law through the Merchant Shipping (Dangerous Goods and Marine Pollutants) Regulations 1997 (SI 1997 No. 2367), as amended and applies to all vessels irrespective of size in UK (navigable) waters. MASS operations will be dictated by the operational requirements of the vessel and carriage of all cargoes should be subject to a risk based safety assessment.


16.2.2 This Section is divided into the following sub-Sections:


n Cargo demarcation; n Ships stores; n Construction and certification requirements; n Operational considerations including emergency and spillage provisions; n Transfer arrangements of Marine Gas Oil (MGO) and equivalents from designated tanks; n Transfer arrangements from portable tanks (greater than 450 litres) or intermediate bulk containers (IBCs); n Transfer arrangements for receptacles less than 200 litres; n Dangerous Goods Classes (listing).


16.2.3 Control of dangerous goods is intended to cover all dangerous goods carried as cargo on a vessel. This includes any specialist equipment which may be classified as dangerous cargoes when carried by crew or workers in the event of partial manned operations.


16.2.4 When carrying dangerous goods identified in the IMDG Code, the vessel is required to have a Document of Compliance for the Carriage of Dangerous Goods issued by the Administration regardless of the quantities being shipped and held by the ‘Operating’ authority for all MASS operations.


16.2.5 Dangerous goods may only be carried at the same time as personnel on vessels holding a Document of Compliance only where such workers or industrial personnel are carried on the express business of the vessel in the event of partial manned operations.
