K-TAINER and SOLAS
Since July the first of 2016, new legislation concerning the registration of container weight and its contents has become binding. This amendment of SOLAS (International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea) was made by the International Maritime Organization to ensure that every container and its contents has its proper weight registered.
This information is vital when it comes to the safety of personnel and products, particularly when it pertains to stacking and shipping of containers. Containers that don't have a valid weight registration will not be allowed to be loaded onto ships where SOLAS applies.
The Safety of Life at Sea convention is the most important international treaty in use, and was put into life in 1914 after the Titanic disaster in 1912.
When required and requested, we at K-TAINER can produce the official weight registration for units supplied by K-tainer to you.
