Material Safety Data Sheet requested for dangerous cargo to/from Ningbo


Ningbo (China) MSA (Maritime Safety Administration) announced, as of October 29th, 2015, that all dangerous goods containers on board must be accompanied by their Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).


This rule applies for dangerous goods containers bound for or coming from Ningbo (Export/Import/Transshipment/Transit).


Consequently, CMA CGM requests its customers to provide their booking agency with the Material Safety Data Sheet in a timely manner to ease the dangerous goods acceptance process and facilitate commercial operations in Ningbo in case the container is aboard a vessel calling Ningbo.
