International Convention for Safe Containers (CSC 1972) IC282E
by IMO - International Maritime Organization
The International Convention for Safe Containers (CSC), 1972, has two goals: to maintain a high level of safety in the transport and handling of containers by providing generally acceptable test procedures and strength requirements, and to facilitate the international transport of containers by providing uniform international safety regulations. The Convention applies to the great majority of freight containers used internationally, except those designed specifically for carriage by air. The amendments to CSC 1972 adopted by resolution MSC.355(92) enter into force on 1 July 2014.
