The IMSBC (International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes) Code started out as the BC Code, first issued in 1965 and became mandatory under SOLAS in January 2011. Its purpose is to provide guidance on the procedures to be adopted when solid bulk cargoes are to be shipped. The Code applies to all ships greater than 500 gross tonnes when carrying bulk cargoes, regardless of whether or not they are called a ‘bulk carrier’. The Code applies to all solid bulk cargoes, except grain.
