Broadcast: Tuesday, May 24, 2016
Duration: 9 minutes

The new Safety of Life at Sea Convention’s Verified Gross Mass (SOLAS VGM) requirements go into effect on July 1. Many uncertainties still remain surrounding the implementation of the new requirements, including countries’ guidelines, VGM cutoff times, and how to obtain the VGM.

This month, we are pleased to continue our coverage and analysis to help you prepare. We have devoted a second webcast of CargoSmart’s Innovating Insights to the new SOLAS requirements.

Presenting highlights from the May issue of CargoSmart’s Innovating newsletter that includes a guide for obtaining the VGM, this 9-minute webcast provides insights to consider as you prepare for the new requirements.

What you will learn:

  • How prepared are countries as of May 20, 2016?
  • Which countries require registration to submit the VGM?
  • What are terminals’ weighing services and fees?
