This publication sets out the chemical cargo groups and the applicable regulations. It provides detailed information on cargo hazards and the operational safeguards required to protect personnel and the environment. It also looks at chemical tanker construction and design, with reference to the IBC Code, together with the operation of cargo handling equipment and systems.


A separate chapter on safety discusses the ship’s safety management system (SMS), risk assessment, enclosed space entry, permits to work and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). There is also advice on emergency response and onboard drills.


In addition, practical guidance is provided on tank cleaning, cargo handling operations and monitoring to be undertaken on the voyage. Bullet lists are used to clarify onboard procedures and to help ensure no step is overlooked.


Each chapter includes references to relevant regulations, codes and industry guidelines.

The book is written as a practical sequential prompt, an aide-mémoire for serving officers and managers, and as a consolidated study guide for those undertaking the advanced training for chemical tanker cargo operations as required by the STCW Convention. The book assumes that the reader has successfully completed basic training for oil and chemical tanker cargo operations.
