Ship Safety Bulletin – Timber Deck Cargo

Transport Canada logo


Transport Canada has released Ship Safety Bulletin No. 01/2019 to clarify its interpretation of maximum height of timber deck cargo above the ship’s weather deck. The bulletin states that the height of cargo is measured from the base of the timber deck cargoes stow to the highest part of the cargo. For example, in case of a crowned top surface, the height shall be measured to the top of the crown. There are concerns with this interpretation and the lack of consultation. The Chamber will be discussing this further in upcoming meetings and with Transport Canada.
