PSA Terminals All Set for SOLAS Implementation

PSA Terminals All Set for SOLAS Implementation

The PSA Group of Terminals is pleased to announce that all its terminal facilities will be in full compliance with the implementation of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) amendments to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) when it comes into effect on 1 July 2016.

As a major and responsible member of the global container shipping community, PSA terminals will provide solutions where possible in the local context to facilitate the smooth and efficient implementation of the SOLAS amendments. Export containers arriving at PSA terminals with valid Verified Gross Mass (VGM) will be accepted in accordance with operational procedures which are in most cases familiar to our customers. For those arriving without VGM, most PSA terminals will be ready to provide a weighing service to determine VGM upon request.

PSA Termimals appreciate that some carriers and shippers are still getting themselves ready for the SOLAS amendments and will work closely alongside all thier stakeholders including the relevant State authorities to ensure that the transition to 1 July 2016 will be a smooth one.
