    Safety Of Life At Sea (SOLAS) & Verified Gross Mass (VGM)

    From 1 July 2016, revisions to the SOLAS Convention, adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), and applied as law for Australia under the Navigation Act 2012, and subordinate Marine Orders will come into effect. These SOLAS amendments will provide that:
    - The shipper will be responsible for verifying the weight of the container and providing the verified gross mass to the Master on the shipping documents. To do this the shipper can use either:

    Method 1 Weighing the packed container
    Method 2 Weighing all the cargo and all other material loaded into the container then and adding the weight of the empty container (marked tare weight) to calculate the gross mass.
    - Weighing of packed containers, or weighing of cargo and other materials if method 2 is used, is to be carried out using calibrated and certified equipment (such as weighbridges, platform scales, pallet or industrial scales) to obtain accurate measurements.
