SOLAS Updates (Safety Of Life At Sea)
Starting July 1st, 2016, all containers will need to be weighed according to SOLAS Verified Gross Mass (VGM) guidelines before being loaded onto an ocean carrier. This will be effective as global law among all 162 SOLAS signatory countries. We at OIA Global will continue to update this page with SOLAS VGM news in the form of weekly summaries, OIA customer announcements and breaking news.
