Hazard Assessment

International regulations aim to ensure safe shipment of cargoes and the protection of the marine environment from harmful pollutants.
These regulations are intended to control risks and the measures that must be taken by shippers depending on the physical, human health and environmental hazards of the material transported.

The International Council for Mining and Metals (ICMM) have produced "Hazard assessment of ores and concentrates for marine transport" document which provides general guidance for mining and metals industry personnel on the hazard classification requirements for marine transport of O&Cs. It is intended as general classification guidance and is not a substitute for expert advice.
