2.2 In MEPC.2/Circ.18, Schedules 1 to 4 contain lists of harmful liquid substances (NSLs), as well as the categories and minimum transport requirements set by tripartite agreements and registered with the IMO. Appendixes 5 to 8 are intended to facilitate the notification of tripartite agreements and the interpretation of abbreviations used in Schedules 1 to 4. The tripartite agreement was submitted to the Commission on 24 March 2017 by Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd (K Line), Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) and Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK). These parties requested the power to exchange information in order to exchange information before the creation of a new business entity under next year`s agreement. Without today`s vote or a request for additional information, the agreement would have entered into force on 8 May. While the finalized evaluated products for which a ship is certified are included in the standard CoF product lists, only one product supplement is added to the CoF, which covers only this specific tripartenary product. The new tripartite list will contain all current trilateral products at the time of the exhibition, for which the vessel can be certified and the ship`s flag is a signatory state. The goal is to facilitate the certification process by putting all tripartite products on a single list and not on a single product supplement.
Created in 2002, the tripartite forum allows shipbuilders, shipowners and classification companies to tackle complex problems. In order to meet the challenges facing all sectors of transport, not just shipping, particularly in terms of energy efficiency, Mr. Tripartite agreed to invite experts from other transport sectors and experienced energy supply specialists to their next meeting. The central idea of the tripartite discussion is based on proactive and creative thinking that must be the central idea of tripartite activities. IMO will conduct a final assessment of the products based on their physical and toxicological properties, as presented by the producing country. The product is then valid for all countries without an expiration date and is included in the standard certificate-fitness list (CoF). The conditions of transport can be changed by the tripartite agreement. DNV GL now offers a list of certificate-for-fitness products that contain all products that have not yet been officially evaluated by IMO, but which are still subject to what is called a tripartite agreement.
