VGM: New Shipping Regulations

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted amendments to the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention that requires packed containers' gross mass to be verified prior to stowage aboard ship.

As from July 1st 2016 this regulation, effective as global law, prohibits loading of a packed container in absence of the verified gross mass (VGM). This applies to all packed containers which are to be loaded on to a vessel under the SOLAS regime in international maritime traffic.

Calibra Africa Ltd has accredited weighing equipment that effectively handles VGM
