Description: This new version of the Guidelines notes that it is vital that Seed Cake that is not classified in Class 4.2 of the IMDG Code should be declared by the shipper to the receiving carrier and appropriate documentation provided to show that the Seed Cake as offered for shipment has been tested in accordance with the provisions of the IMDG Code.
This version 3 of the Guidelines also includes the strong recommendation that Seed Cake which is not classified in Class 4.2 of the IMDG Code should meet the same requirements for container selection, packing, inspection, stowage and segregation as set out in the Guidelines for Seed Cake that is classified as dangerous goods.
This version 3 of the Guidelines replaces, and supersedes, version 2 that was published in June 2020.
The carriage of Seed Cake cargoes continues to cause confusion and the potential for undeclared or misdeclared cargo remains high - with the consequent risk of fire on board container ships. “Seed Cake” is the term used for pulp, cake, pellets, expellers or other cargo where oil has been removed from oil-bearing seeds, cereals or commodities with similar properties, including all such types of seed meal. It is principally used as an ingredient in animal feeds.
In addition to giving details of the issues arising from the carriage of Seed Cake in containers, the Guidelines also provide advice about container selection, packing and stowage on board ship.
