(Excludes any applicable taxes)

In spring 2012, The CDI Marine Executive Board instructed its Technical Committee to draw up a Best Practice Recommendation regarding the use of nitrogen on board chemical tankers for use by the chemical industry as appropriate.

Consequently, the Technical Committee met on two occasions during 2012 and concluded its work in the form of this document.

The objective of the paper is to set out the Chemical industries recommendation regarding the use of Nitrogen on sea going chemical tankers and to supplement safer ways of working within the industry, fully recognising the dangers of Nitrogen, both to people and ships, and the means to address this: no more, no less. The paper is “not” intended to supplant any regulations that IMO may, at some time in the future, introduce. The document is an evolving living document that will be periodically reviewed by CDI.

The CDI is a chemical industry organization, incorporated under the law of the Netherlands as the Stichting Chemical Distribution Institute (CDI) and operates as a non-profit making foundation.

CDI is managed by a Board of Directors consisting of seven individuals nominated by the participating chemical companies. The Board of Directors establishes policy and is responsible for overall affairs of the foundation. Individual Executive Boards are elected to oversee and direct the staff managing day to day activities for the Marine, Terminals and Marine Packed Cargo Schemes.
