What is Offshore Container?
As defined by the International Maritime Organization, an offshore container is a “portable unit, specially designed for repeated use in the transport of goods or equipment to, from or between fixed and/or floating offshore installations and ships.”
Why does offshore container need third party certificate?
The importance of offshore containers has steadily grown alongside the offshore oil and gas industry. Due to the harsh conditions they face, offshore containers must be designed to withstand forces other types of containers cannot. Third-party certification services play a key role in assuring the owners of offshore containers that their cargo will be safely ferried to a drilling rig or platform.
Manufacturers of offshore containers for use in the majority of countries around the world must adhere to the guidelines set by the International Maritime Organisation. Offshore container approval guidelines were set forth in the IMO MSC/Circ. 860, a supplement to the International Maritime Dangerous Goods code. This is set as law in 162 countries around the world, and is meant to ensure the safe transport of cargo to offshore platforms and rigs.
