MSC.1/Circ.1265 "Recommendations on the safe use of pesticides in ships applicable to the fumigation of cargo transport units" adopted 9 June 2008
These recommendations address the hazards to personnel arising from the operations involved in the carriage of fumigated containers. This guidance is aimed at everyone involved in the supply chain. Although the contents of the container may not be subject to the provisions of the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) code, the process of fumigating such a container may bring it into the scope of the code. If the container comes within the scope of the code hazard communication provisions are mandatory. Hazard communication measures required by the IMDG Code include:
1 warning signs on containers;
2 transport documents describing the fumigation method and, if appropriate, ventilation
3 requirements to declare fumigated containers on ships’ manifests.
