Update of Chapters 17 and 18 of the IBC Code

Thursday, March 25, 2021

The update of Chapters 17 and 18 of the International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships carrying Dangerous Chemicals in Bulk (IBC Code) is now available for download from our SDS Authoring Tool, ExESS.

Pursuant to Conventions SOLAS Chapter VII and MARPOL Annex II, chemical tankers built after 1 July 1986 need to comply with the IBC Code. Chapters 17 and 18 respectively provide a summary of the minimum requirements and a list of products to which the IBC Code does not apply.
