This article makes reference to the vessel’s Cargo Securing Manual, which is
required by the IMO; the IMO Code of Safe Practice for Cargo Stowage and
Securing, and; the IMO Code of Safe Practice for Ships Carrying Timber Deck
Cargoes, 1991, with the included interpretation of Regulation 44 of the
International Convention on Load Lines.
There continues to be a steady incidence of timber deck cargoes being lost
overboard, sometimes with catastrophic results for ship and crew. It is
therefore more important than ever to ensure that the carriage, stowage and
securing of timber deck cargoes does not fall short of any currently accepted
codes, rules, regulations or formal recommendations, including the IMO
Cargo Securing Manual regulations mandatory since 1 January 1998 for all
ships other than exempted ships. Those involved with the carriage of timber
deck cargoes should have a full knowledge of the IMO Code and be alert to
the ongoing probability of future amendments.
