At the next opportunity, the operator should consider urgently requesting a tripartite list instead of an endorsement to certify the vessel for all products currently available. This information is ready to provide chemical tanker owners and stakeholders with detailed explanations of tripartite agreements for each list in the circular, as many requests have recently been made by shipowners. The goal is to facilitate the certification process by placing all tripartite products on a single list and not on a single product supplement. While ship-certified products are included in the standard CoF product lists, only a product supplement is added to the CoF, which only covers this Tripartenary product. The new tripartite list will contain all current trilateral products at the time of the exhibition, for which the ship can be certified and the flag is a signatory state. At the next opportunity, the operator should urgently request a tripartite list instead of confirmation of the ship`s certification for all products currently available. The new tripartite list will contain all current trilateral products at the time of the exhibition, for which the ship can be certified and the flag is a signatory state. The new list includes the signatory states and tripartite expiration dates for each product, in addition to standard mentions such as the tanks in which the product can be transported, the footnotes and the CATEGORY OF POLLUTION MARPOL. When new chemicals or product mixtures are proposed for mass sands, they are usually subject to a so-called tripartite agreement. The objective of a tripartite agreement is to allow the relatively rapid shipment of a new product for a transitional period before the IMO conducts the final assessment. 2.1 Because chemical manufacturers are constantly manufacturing new products that are not yet included in the IBC code, products are evaluated and classified by the government of the country for production, importation or shipment on chemical tankers.
IMO will conduct a definitive assessment of the products on the basis of their physical and toxicological properties, as presented by the producing country. The product is then valid for all countries without an expiration date and is included in the standard certificate-fitness list (CoF). The conditions of transport can be changed by the tripartite agreement. While the finalized evaluated products for which a ship is certified are included in the standard CoF product lists, only one product supplement is added to the CoF, which covers only this specific tripartenary product. The new tripartite list will contain all current trilateral products at the time of the exhibition, for which the vessel can be certified and the ship`s flag is a signatory state. In particular, for ships that often request tripartenary addendums, usually package chemical tankers, the new product list is a better alternative than asking for an endorsement each time a tripartie product is destined to be transported. DNV GL now offers a list of certificate-for-fitness products that contain all products that have not yet been officially evaluated by IMO, but which are still subject to what is called a tripartite agreement. This facilitates the certification process by listing all tricolor products on a single list, as opposed to a single product supplement.
The new lists of three as existing addendums will only be issued on request. The tax for the tripartite list will not exceed the price of two or more addendums. The benefit will be a greater likelihood that the next tripartite product to be shipped will already be covered by the CoF, thereby reducing administrative and certification costs.
