Dear valued client,
Please be informed that the carriers have adjusted the temporary additional transport requirements for Dangerous Goods (DG) affecting UN numbers with Special Provision SP386 or the term “stabilized” against polymerization as part of the Proper Shipping Name (PSN).
After further risk assessment with the chemical industry experts, the carriers require a written letter of confirmation from the manufacturer of goods for the respective transport. This measure is in place with immediate effect.
Please use the following format for the letter of confirmation:
“Polymerizing Substances Chemically Stabilized
As Manufacturer of the Dangerous Goods (DG) applied for transport in question declared under UN numbers with Special Provision SP386 or with the term “stabilized” against polymerization as part of the Proper Shipping Name (PSN)
I confirm the following:
The cargo in question is sufficiently chemically stabilized for the complete sea transport including possible transshipments and waiting times and at least 90 days after planned departure of the vessel. There will be no loss of stability or risk of polymerization even under abnormal ambient temperatures up to 55°C during transport.
Any temperature or operational controls due to safety reasons is not required.
The transport is in compliance with the requirements of the IMDG Code.”
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or comments.
